Smoking and Oral Health

-Smoking leads to dental problems, including bad breath, tooth discoloration, increased plaque build up on the teeth, and an increased risk of developing gum disease, which leads to tooth loss. Smoking also delays the healing process following tooth extraction and increases the risk of developing oral cancer. It's never too late to quit smoking. Regardless of how long you have used tobacco products, quitting now can greatly reduce serious risks to your health.

Why do baby teeth need to be fixed. They'll just fall out anyways."

Though the baby teeth will fall out, some will stay in your child's mouth until age 12. Decayed teeth should be filled to prevent the decay from spreading deep into the pulp, which can cause pain and infection, and can hurt your child's health. Extracted baby teeth may need a spacer to hold the space for the permanent tooth to come in.

A child's first dental exam should be 6 months after the first teeth erupt or by age 1, as recommended by the Canadian Dental Association, and then an exam every six months so that problems can be detected early. This also allows you to find out if the cleaning you are doing at home is effective and the child also learns that going to the dentist helps prevent problems.

Gum disease is on the most common dental problems faced by adults. Gums and underlying bones hold teeth firmly in place.
Gum disease affects the attachment between gums teeth.
Gum disease often develops slowly and without pain. some patients may not notice any signs until the disease is serious and poses a risk of tooth loss.
The Good news is:
  • gum disease can almost allways be prevented
  • if it starts, it can be treated
  • it can even be reversed in early stages.
So make an appointment at our yaletown dentitry office, Homer Dental Center, to maintain good oral health.
