Gingivitis & Second Hand Smoke

Gingivitis & Second Hand Smoke

Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease can be caused by second-hand smoke.  A study funded by the National Institutes of Health-National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research analyzed 3255 self-reported lifetime non-smokers from 2009 to 2012. The non-smokers were exposed to environmental tobacco smoke, “ETS,” second-hand smoke. These people had 1.45 times the odds of moderate/severe periodontitis (gum disease) as compared with unexposed nonsmokers.

Each participant underwent a periodontal examination, the Heath, and Nutrition Examination Survey, and provided blood samples looking for serum cotinine, a metabolite of nicotine to classify exposure to ETS.

Forty-seven percent of people in the United States are affected by periodontitis. More investigation will be necessary to investigate serum cotinine and periodontitis in other non-smokers. The U.S. Surgeon General has concluded that cigarette smoking is one of the causes.

Verde Pointe Dental Associates are local dentists that understand the ramifications of smoking and dental care. It would be our great pleasure to welcome new patients to the dental office. We are happy to answer questions concerning tobacco use, second-hand smoke, and dental health.

Good work




Dr K did a great job taking care of my teeth. After a previous bad experience with another dentist. He did a good job doing things correctly and quickly and painlessly. He does not spend much time with you and was seeing several patients at once. But I am happy with the work.
