Dental Implants and Smoking | What Are the Risks?

What Are the Risks? | Ocean Dental Cancun Dental Implants and Smoking Smoking has two main effects on oral health: Firstly, inhaled smoke actually burns the oral tissues producing a keratosis — a thickening of the top layer of skin cells. It also occludes (blocks off) and damages the salivary glands, resulting in mouth dryness. Secondly, nicotine and its many by-products affect peripheral blood vessels (the superficial ones in the mouth and skin), in essence clamping them down so that there’s less blood flow to the areas they supply. This affects both healing and immune (defense) mechanisms. Mouth dryness also promotes increased growth of pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria, which increases both the incidence and severity of periodontal (gum) disease. And the long-term effects of chronic tobacco use are well known: increased incidence of cardiovascular, metabolic and lung disease, ...

Chewing sugarless gum can be good for you

Chewing sugarless gum can be good for you Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay. The chewing of sugarless gum increases the flow of saliva, which washes away food and other debris, neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and provides disease-fighting substances throughout the mouth. Increased saliva flow also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel. Look for chewing gum with the ADA Seal because you can be sure it’s sugarless. All gums with the ADA Seal are sweetened by non-cavity causing sweeteners such as aspartame, xylitol, sorbitol or mannitol. Of course, chewing sugar-containing gum increases saliva flow too, but it also contains sugar which is used by plaque bacteria to produce decay-causing acids. Further research needs to be done to determine the effec...
