Smoking and How it Affects Your Dental Health

If you are a smoker, you almost certainly realize the potential and possibly life-threatening risk to your general health but are you aware of how the habit affects your dental health. In fact, the impact is far-reaching and can do far more damage than merely give you smoker’s breath. Smoking can stain your teeth, increases the risk of gum disease and tooth loss in Oshawa, and increases your risk of oral cancer, a potentially fatal disease. How Does Smoking Stain Teeth? Tooth stains are one of the most obvious side-effects of smoking and are caused by the nicotine and tar in tobacco. Teeth can become yellow in a very short space of time. Long-term smokers will often have teeth that look quite brown. The Effect of Smoking on Your Gum Health Gum disease is a risk for everyone, but smokers are more likely to develop this condition.

Is Your Snoring Really Sleep Apnea?

Everyone will snore occasionally, and especially if you have a heavy cold or allergies. But, if you are aware of snoring more regularly, or if a sleeping partner has complained you are keeping them awake, it is possible you could have a condition called sleep apnea. Unlike regular snoring, sleep apnea is characterized by frequent pauses in breathing and episodes of loud snoring. Breathing can cease for several seconds or more each time. When it restarts, it is often with a loud gasp or snort. If this sounds a bit too familiar, it could be worth investigating if you have sleep apnea, or if you do just simply snore rather loudly! What are the Signs of Sleep Apnea? The main sign of sleep apnea is loud snoring, but this is punctuated with episodes where breathing stops or gasping for air while asleep. People with sleep apnea in Oshawa will often…

Ill-Fitting Dentures and What to Do About Them

Do you currently wear full or partial dentures? Is your denture causing you problems? A well-fitting denture can be a great solution for tooth loss, and here at Margolian Dentistry, we take enormous care when designing and fabricating full and partial dentures. But, they do need continual maintenance and care and will need regular relines or remaking entirely. One common problem facing denture wearers is the destruction of the jawbone. Jawbone Loss When your natural teeth are removed, your jawbone gradually shrinks as the bone adjusts and remodels. Some bone loss is unavoidable because your jawbone relies on the stimulation provided by your tooth roots to keep its shape. Although your jawbone will shrink, your denture certainly won’t, which is why even the best-made dentures will no longer fit as snugly and as securely as originally. An ill-fitting denture can actually accelerate jawbone loss, which is why regular denture adjustments…
