Dentistry and Tobacco use
8th December 2014
Dentistry Today has recently printed the results of research regarding dentistry and tobacco use. A majority of dentists, as the study finds, are speaking with their patients about tobacco use. Because the side effects of tobacco use are largely oral, including mouth cancers, lesions, and general tooth decay, dentists feel it is their duty to get involved.
Dentists at Carisbrooke perform screenings while they examine and clean your teeth routinely. They are looking for sores and lesions, growths, or anything else that looks out of place. They will alert patients to any anomalies and offer suggestions for treatment implementation or changes in hygiene. Early detection is always key. When dentists notice a pattern in the mouth which might allude to tobacco use, they will often be adamant against the habit and offer advice to stop smoking.
