Dental and physical health insights from a doctor

Do smokers lose their teeth as a result of smoking?

Yes, I agree! As a result of smoking, your teeth receive less blood flow and do not heal properly. The result can be tooth decay, gum disease, and eventually tooth loss.

As a result of smoking, your blood vessels narrow, including those in your gums. Consequently, the gum tissue receives a reduced supply of oxygen and nutrients as a result of reduced blood flow. As a result, your gums are unable to heal and maintain a healthy environment for your teeth.

Maintain a regular dental visit schedule. Wearing a night guard and managing your anxiety can help prevent chronic tooth grinding and TMJ problems.

Make sure you keep an eye on your blood sugar levels. Keep an eye on your A1c level. In addition, if you suffer from chronic dry mouth, you should be aware that this can negatively impact your dental health. Now is the time to take preventative measures. Consult your healthcare provider!

Which of the following three diseases is associated with tooth loss?

It has been suggested that tooth loss may contribute to the development of dementia as a result of chronic inflammation caused by gum disease and tooth decay. The inflammation can trigger a response in the brain and lead to cognitive decline as a result.

Atherosclerosis occurs when chronic inflammation spreads throughout the body, including blood vessels, as a result of gum disease and dental decay. Cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes are associated with this condition.

An imbalance in your bite can cause chronic headaches and jaw pain/bone loss, placing excessive pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). As a result, headaches and jaw pain are experienced. Furthermore, tooth loss can cause the jawbone to break down, resulting in facial collapse, speech problems, and even the inability to use dental implants.

When the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is overused, severe headaches can result, which can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life.
