We know that tobacco lends a hand in staining your teeth. But does vaping have any effect on staining teeth? Knowing The Risks When smoking a cigarette, you’re ingesting a combustible. Consuming a flammable means you are inhaling many chemicals into your body and your mouth. These chemicals lead to many medical issues but also lead to many dental problems. Both cigarette and vaping consist of nicotine, which is a harmful and addictive chemical. When vaping, you are ingesting the same amount of toxic substances. Although vaping is considered to be healthier than cigarettes, both should be avoided at all costs. Smoking is not suitable for your teeth and gums and, indeed, not good for your body. Vaping is a much safer alternative; however, vaping does cause many health issues in your mouth and body. Smoking either a vape pen or a cigarette will still cause pain and inflammation to your teeth when getting a dental procedure done. Bilski Dental Group highly recommends that our patients stop smoking and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

The normal routine we suggest for seeing patients is twice per year for teeth cleaning. But at times, someone might be getting a few extra cleanings per year. Is there a difference in the amount of cleaning you get as a patient of Bilski Dental Group? Cleaning Stats Back in the 1940s, dentists recommended getting your teeth cleaned twice per year. Later on, in the 1950s, this was heavily marketed across the United States. Since then, we’ve stuck with this pattern to promote healthy oral hygiene. The truth is, if you are a low-risk cavity patient, and have no receding or swollen gums, then twice a year is just the right amount. Typically these types of patients are under the age of 30. When you start reaching 35+, we notice that our patients tend to get more busy with their lives, resulting in fewer visits to our dental office. For our patients who reach the age of 60-70, we at Bilski Dental Group recommend they come in at least three times a year for cleaning. These cleanings will be conducted every four months. This age group needs more frequent cleaning because as we age, we become more susceptible to medical conditions in our bodies and in our mouths. For our patients 75 years old or older, we recommend having you come in for a cleaning at least four times per year. These age ranges are based on industry research through the American Academy of Periodontology. The American Heart Association is also recommending the same inform
