Imagine this unpleasant scenario for a moment. Already with misshapen false teeth in place elsewhere, this smoker dreads the moment he must visit his ageing mom, also with false teeth uncomfortably and loosely set. The moment this grown man walks through his mom’s front door, she begins to rant over his atrociously yellowing teeth. An anti-smoker throughout her life, she hates the very sight of this poor gentleman’s presence.
This is putting it quite harshly folks, but there you go. It is just one scenario in the extreme for the smoker who can’t quit his habit. Some readers may be asking what could this have to do with clinical dentistry. Well, quite a lot, actually. Think about it for a moment. Part of the modern dental tradition of providing the full spectrum of latest technologies to a great number of patients, including smokers, is the effective cosmetic but hygienically clear dental teeth cleaning or whitening procedures.
Even if you weren’t a smoker, who wouldn’t want to be seen with gleaming white teeth. But for most men and women it has been almost impossible to achieve this. Those that did, have essentially been living very healthy lives. These healthy lives include the implementation of balanced healthy eating plans in which vital ingredients included turn out to be extremely healthy for teeth and gums. Today’s dental technologies take care of the cosmetics.
More importantly, it takes care of dental health and oral hygiene where extreme forms of decay can be reversed effectively before submitting to the last resort of replacing teeth with false structures. But even so, today’s dentures are being designed, manufactured and inserted in as natural, comfortable and healthy a manner as possible.
