You can loose your teeth!on Thursday, January 9, 2014
At Gresham Hypnosis Center we offer a fully guaranteed Hypnosis Stop Smoking Program. All my clients can tell you; anyone who smokes knows there are so many well documented reasons to stop smoking, right? Well there are some less publicized reasons and over the next couple of weeks I’ll be letting the cat outta the bag and what you can do to make things right.
Smoking makes you lose your teeth.
Smokers are twice as likely to lose teeth as nonsmokers, the reason? Gum disease. Heavy smokers, according to one study, are six times as likely to get periodontal disease as nonsmokers. And getting good dental care doesn’t mitigate the damage; one study found that even after five years of periodontal treatment, smokers lost teeth at twice the rate of nonsmokers.
Why does this happen?
Smoking reduces blood flow to the periodontal tissue, which includes both gum and bone. This tissue holds the teeth in place and provides the oxygen and nutrition necessary to sustain the living tooth. By reducing blood flow, smoking starves the periodontal tissue of oxygen and nutrients, causing it to age prematurely. Smoking also inhibits the body’s ability to fight off infection from the bacteria that naturally occur in the mouth, leading to chronic inflammation. Eventually the bone begins to erode and the teeth loosen and fall out.
What happens when you stop smoking?
Experts say that within months of quitting smoking, circulation is restored to normal or near-normal levels. And studies show that within a year, the risk of developing heart disease drops to half that of people who still smoke, suggesting that cardiovascular damage isn’t permanent. Your body will regain its ability to fight off infection, including the gum disease that can cause you to lose your teeth.
