The Life-threatening Link Between Smoking and Dental Health

The-Life-threatening-Link-Between-Smoking-and-Dental-Health-p

Nicotine is a potential destroyer of the wellbeing of mouth and teeth. It contracts the blood vessel and reduces the blood flow to the gums and bone. Decreased blood supply results can conceal the symptoms of the disease and weakens the ability of the body to fight any infection. Moreover, other chemicals in the cigarettes merged with plaque bacteria produce a dangerous combination.

People who make smoking as their daily habit are six times more prone to periodontal disease. In an advanced gum disease, teeth become loose and require tooth extraction. Smoking can mask the symptoms of periodontal disease for years and the disorder can be very progressive before a smoker observes any damage.

The best thing to do is never engage in smoking or if you already did, stop the deadly habit while there’s time left. Oral cancer is often fatal that you wouldn’t want to experience such condition.

In fact, a survey reveals that 75 per cent of adults wish they took better care of their teeth and gums. Only 11 per cent of the population rate their oral wellness as excellent.

Have you ever wondered how our current situation compares to dental health back in the stone-age? The answers are most likely to surprise you.

In order to make this comparison, a team of researchers from all over the world examined genetic materials that had been preserved in tartar found on prehistoric human skeletons. The researchers used these samples to get a better understanding of how oral bacteria changed throughout history, from the Stone Age to the Industrial Revolution.

According to the lead author, by analysing the genetic material found in plaque, they were able to create records of how dietary choices and other relevant factors impact the overall status of our ancestors’ dental and oral health. Continue Reading
