Chewing Tobacco Damages your Oral Health Just Like Smoking Does

Posted on 7/23/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Many people easily assume that just because chewable tobacco doesn't expose them to the risks of carcinogens in smoke, it's safe and 'cool'. But despite what you might have been led to believe through ads and product packages, chewing tobacco is as almost as risky to your dental and overall health as smoking tobacco.

So, first, we must identify the problem to see how to continue forward with the best treatment of the exposed tooth root. What Can We Do for You? A common problem that causes the tooth root to become exposed is the moving of the gum line. This is the simplest issue to resolve, and the procedure done in this instance is called the pinhole technique. During this medical procedure, we will gently and precisely move already existing gum over the exposed root to where it once existed. Using this procedure, we can avoid cutting or stitching anywhere inside the mouth. If you are struggling with sensitive teeth due to an exposed root, we are sometimes able to treat it by applying a desensitizing agent or fluoride treatment to the exposed area. By utilizing this method, we are able to cure your sensitive tooth without using...
