If you’re a smoker and experiencing gum problems, whether it be inflammation, soreness, or bleeding gums, smoking is likely the cause.
Most of us know that smoking isn’t exactly the healthiest choice we can make for ourselves. However, it really is bad news when it comes to the health of our gums, and is in fact one of the main causes of gum disease in America.
Research suggests that more than one-half (8.1 million cases) of chronic periodontitis cases in the United States are attributed to cigarette smoking.
Cigarettes’ effects on gums
When you inhale cigarette smoke, the toxins and chemicals present in cigarettes and tobacco completely strip your mouth of all the vital nutrients that aid your mouth’s natural healing process. This leads to inflammation and, in turn, hinders immune functionality, which prevents your body’s natural ability to heal infection.
People who smoke regularly will usually experience sore and swollen gums. This is because the nicotine content constricts blood vessels and reduces blood flow to your gums. This also leads to gums becoming incredibly undernourished.
There are many studies to suggest that people who smoke are much more likely to develop gum disease and other serious gum issues that lead to tooth extraction than non-smokers.
We acknowledge that quitting smoking is not an easy thing to do. However, if you’re a smoker and have sore or swollen gums or bleeding gums, it’s vital that you at least consider significantly cutting down if you want to protect your oral and overall health.
