Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Invisalign Braces

September 7, 2022

WWhile the adverse effects of smoking are a stranger to no one, less light has been shed on the consequences of using tobacco for oral health.

Known for being the culprit behind lung cancer, degrading the quality of the lungs, and causing breathing problems, the use of tobacco is as dangerous to your oral health as it is to the rest of your body. Your dentist in Goa shall inform and educate you regarding how tobacco affects your oral health. 

The dental problems caused by smoking:

Bad Breath, Tooth Discoloration and Degradation of Teeth:
Tobacco leaves themselves have tiny particles that are abrasive, thus when mixed with saliva it forms a texture that degrades the quality of teeth.

  1. Leads to Oral Cancer:
    Smokers are more likely to develop oral cancer than non-smokers.
  2. Interferes with Blood Circulation:
    The damage caused by smoking reduces blood flow, increases bacteria and inflammation. Due to this, it becomes difficult to replace missing teeth.
    For example, bridges and implants can be difficult to work with because the entire jaw and supporting teeth are not strong enough for these procedures. Your dentist in Goa shall explain the entire process.
  3. Creates Plaque and Tartar:
    When the chemicals of tobacco mix with your saliva it helps oral bacteria stick to your teeth better. If not regularly removed, it forms into tartar which has to be professionally removed. It also weakens gums and causes tooth decay. Ensure to check in with your dentist in Margao or dentist in Goa to reduce the possible damage if any.

Smoking and Gum Disease:

Smoking and tobacco products affect the bone and soft tissue of the teeth which causes gum diseases. This makes smokers more gullible to infections and it also affects wound healing. There are many more aspects to how smoking affects the gums, it’s best to let your dentist in Goa update you with risks involved with smoking.

Chewing Tobacco and the adverse effects:

Chewing Tobacco is also known as smokeless tobacco and is equally dangerous. A good dentist in Goa shall educate you on how chewing tobacco causes numerous types of cancers such as pancreas, lip, tongue, and mouth. There’s also an increased risk of tooth decay as sugar is added to chewing tobacco and it also increases the sensitivity of the tooth. 

One of the main risks of chewing tobacco is the risk for cancer of the oesophagus, colon and bladder as the toxic juice of the tobacco is swallowed while chewing.

What about Pipes and Cigars?

Contrary to popular belief, pipes and cigars are equally as bad as cigarettes. They are both also susceptible to tooth loss, oral and throat cancer, as well as teeth discolouration and bad breath. 

Remedies and Precautionary Measures: 

Ideally speaking, the best precautionary method would be to prevent getting into the habit of smoking or trying to quit the habit altogether. 

However it’s easier said than done, a good dentist in Goa shall help decrease the risk of harmful effects of tobacco by giving you a good oral regime for you to follow. 

Ensure that your dental routine is up to the mark with healthy dental habits: 

  • Brush at least twice a day.
  • Floss often to remove any plaque to avoid tartar build-up. 
  • Visit a dentist regularly for check-ups as well as professional cleanings.
  • The most effective method is to quit the usage of tobacco.

After reading positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try, I must say I had a very good experience. I had a filling done with another dentist for my front tooth, it was not matching my tooth colour.When smiling people used to tell me I have lipstick on my teeth and I had to tell them that it’s a filling and not lipstick. Dr. Schuyler had replaced the filling which is matching my teeth colour. He is very informative and explains everything in details which is easy for the patient to understand. Very happy with their service. In future will be getting my implants done with him. Highly recommended.

Cool Dentist period!!I am visiting this clinic from past 3 months, got the best treatment possible. I had a front chipped tooth which Dr Schuyler fixed and made it look as it was naturally ,which boosted my confidence in social and professional life. I was treated by Dr Anthea also she was the sweetest doctor ever taking care of her patients in the most professional way. The staff is too good with the patients , giving follow-up calls and reminders in a very polite and gentle way.Overall one of the best Dentist clinic. Worth it.

With the pandemic in 2019, I never consulted a dentist until I moved back to Goa, India, last month (June 2022).As I was googling and looking for a good dentist in Margao, I came across - Smile Craft. Their website was nice and fancy among all the other dental clinics, but I wasn't sure if they were the best.Yet, I thought I would give them a shot. My primary concern was my molar which went wrong after I did a root canal years back. So I got my appointment booked and was consulted by Dr. Schuyler.The first thing I mentioned to him was let's extract the molar instead of fixing it, as I had no hope of improving it. However, Dr. Schuyler wasn't ready to extract it and believed it still could be fixed. Dr. Schuyler and their team always provide the best advice to get that beautiful smile crafted :)Well, If it could be all fixed - I was all up for it. After a couple of visits, my teeth are as good as they could be. Their team uses A1 quality dental filling; you can't even notice you have a filling. It matches your tooth color, unlike some dentists using cheap quality, which feels like POP stuck on your teeth.Also, they're very cautious while completing their dental procedure with no pain at all. I nearly dozed off once.I think the Smile Craft team is one of the best out there. I recommend it to everyone looking to get their smile crafted by the best team - SMILE CRAFT is the place!!

Dr Schuyler is very friendly and truly a spectacular dentist. The quality of service I received during my treatment is simply outstanding. I have done 1 filling, and one tooth implant ,which was done with gentle care and no pain, during the implant Dr explain everything to me what he was doing which I think is very professional.Overall my experience in the surgery was amazing. I would like to say special thanks to Dr Schuyler ,and everyone who works at Smile Craft ,you all doing a great job.Highly recommend

Dr Schuyler is one of the best dentists in Goa! Had visited him for a couple of tooth colored fillings and was very impressed. His work stands out, I cannot even tell that my tooth has a filling! It looks so natural! The clinic is clean and the staff is very polite and professional. Yes, it did take me time to get an appointment, but now I realize why. Certainly recommend Smile Craft to anyone looking at getting quality dental treatment done.
