PERIODONTAL DISEASE IN SMOKERS

PERIODONTAL DISEASE IN SMOKERS

Periodontitis affects more commonly and also more severe in smokers, they present deeper periodontal pockets and a greater loss of tooth insertion. Usually gums are seen with a paler tone and smokers of long duration, have teeth with loss of bone support and with an aesthetic that affects the smile, as the gum papules disappear between the teeth and appear Dark spaces in place.

In general, smokers have a 2.5 to 6-fold greater risk of periodontal disease than non-smokers. Smoking has also been shown to have an adverse effect on wound healing because it increases the risk of alveolitis (postoperative pain after periodontal intervention or dental extraction).

In addition to these problems, tobacco masks inflammation of the gums and they bleed less despite being inflamed. Many people with gum problems notice an increase in bleeding during brushing after decreasing tobacco use. Another negative point is that people who smoke a large number of cigarettes frequently develop bad breath and a hard palate, pale or white, often combined with multiple red dots.
