Solutions For People Who Have Stained Their Teeth Through Smoking

 

It is common knowledge that prolonged use of tobacco can be the cause of several health issues. Tobacco is also the source of bad oral health. Regardless of the way in which you use it, tobacco is responsible for more than one problem in your mouth. It is the cause of issues such as stained teeth, bad breath, tooth loss, gum disease and even mouth cancer.

Most people find it very difficult to quit smoking, although the stubborn tobacco stains on their teeth often encourage them to give it up. These stains can still be there long after people who have stained their teeth through smoking, have stopped.

The two substances that are the cause of these stains are tar and nicotine. The surface of the teeth turn a yellow brown colour when these two substances creep into the tiniest openings in the tooth enamel. Although nicotine is colourless it turns yellow as soon as it is mixed with oxygen. Tar and nicotine will settle in the mouth through the inhalation of tobacco. Tobacco stains can be removed because they are located on the outside of the teeth.

The first move towards having stain free teeth is to either quit the habit or never begin. Good oral hygiene consists of brushing at least twice a day. Flossing and using antiseptic mouthwash are not able to completely protect your teeth from stains, but will help. You should at least rinse your mouth after smoking tobacco if you cannot brush each time.

This will ensure that most of the harmful substances are removed from your mouth without delay. Having regular dental check-ups are important too. These will also inform you if tobacco has caused any serious oral problems. Many procedures and products that claim to remove tobacco stains from teeth may be harmful to your teeth enamel and gums.

It is true that first impressions count. Whenever you meet or greet someone for the first time it is important to create a good impression. This can affect your meeting in either a positive or negative way.

People who have stained their teeth through smoking may behave in a timid or unconfident manner and try not to smile because of the condition of their teeth. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this problem and no-one has to suffer with tobacco stained teeth indefinitely.
