Smoking Can Be Fatal - In German

Smoking Can Be Fatal In German is:  Rauchen kann tödlich sein

This is what is written on cigarette advertisements and cartons in Germany 

Here is a video to give you an idea of the pronunciation:   


Not only can smoking be fatal, it is not good for your dental health either! 

Here is an excerpt from the book: What You Should Know About Gum Disease : A Layman's Guide to Fighting Gum Disease. 

Smoking: It seems like there are plenty of good reasons to give up smoking. Here is yet another. Smoking is a contributing factor to the development of gum disease. This could be because of the smoke’s effect on the immune system or the direct effect of the smoke on gum tissue. Smoking dries out the mucous and saliva-producing tis- sues of the mouth, and smoke is also toxic in nature. Any of these reasons—and more—can be why smoking contributes to the progression of gum disease. It makes sense, right? Smoke is poison and poison harms the tissues of the body. 

You can also find the book : What You Should Know About Gum Disease here. 

If smoking is affecting your breath (of course it does) you might want to counter that with a little : French Kiss Chewing Gum.  

If you haven't quite yet, I hope this helps to motivate you to 'make it happen'.   And if you love someone who hasn't quit yet,  you could send this page to them.

Gum Disease Treatment Video

This is a video on the post I wrote earlier entitled:  Gum Disease Treatment.

Here is the video:  (leave your comments and thoughts below)

Here is the link to the full post:  

Do not foolishly believe that gum disease is something you should not be concerned about.  The fact is MOST people have some gum disease.   Since it is the leading cause of lost teeth, it is not something you want to fool around with.

Do not join the ranks of people who have lost teeth and had dentures and implants installed and still don't know the reason they lost their teeth was due to gum disease! 

As many doctors are fully aware:  Many people are headed for expensive periodontal (gum) treatments and they just don't know it.   Look at the office lobby of any periodontist and you will understand how widespread this problem is.

What You Should Know About Gum Disease 

Top Tool For Home Use

Part 31 Video

You can only see your dentist a few times a year.   Most people don't get their teeth cleaned more than 2 to 4 times per year.

However, the struggle against gum disease is a daily one.  Since your dentist can't clean your teeth for you every day,  the bulk of the struggle against gum disease, cavities and bad breath falls on your shoulders.

Since gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, this daily struggle should be taken very seriously.   As you likely already know, the cost of fillings is fairly high.   I can assure you that the cost of dental surgery, gum grafts and implants is much higher.

Don't get stuck with big bills.  Learn what you need to do, beyond regular brushing and flossing, to help protect your dental health and your wallet!

What You Should Know About Gum Disease Part 29

What You Should Know About Gum Disease - Part 29. 

In this video we reinforce the concept that plaque is the enemy and that the plaque continues to come back again and again.   It is a fight that must be fought every single day.  Failure to do so, is usually a step backwards.

The plaque is a living 'biofilm' and it forms an oxygen shield.  When this happens the 'bad bacteria' have a chance to reproduce rapidly and produce more and more acidic toxins which can ultimately have the effect of destroying surrounding tissue.

If too much of that tissue, including the bone, is destroyed, the tooth or teeth can become loose.  This is a disaster.  Implants can be very costly.

You can find the book here. 

Many people have gum disease right now and many (most)  do not know it.   In fact, there are people who have lost teeth and now have implants and they still don't know or understand that the reason for losing the teeth was gum disease.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.  It is possible to lose teeth through accidents or very severe cavities.  However, gum disease is the far, far in the lead when it comes to tooth loss.

I believe the book is one that every family should have o their book shelf.  Since dental professionals tell us that 3 out of every four or about 75%  of people have gum disease, there is a good chance that you or someone you love will need this information.

If you can save yourself from even one expensive treatment or toot replacement you will be far out in the lead.

Smoking And Your Gums

Smoking and Chewing Tobacco Increase Risk For Gum Disease

I guess this should more or less be a common sense statement.  But it is still good to talk about it because there may be people who are not as clear as they should be.

The harsh chemicals in both cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco are harmful to the tissues of the body. The gum tissue, receiving direct contact, can be affected.  Smoking has been indicated as an additional risk factor for gum disease.

Story About Cadaver Lab

When I took Gross Anatomy it was a very interesting experience.  We had a cadaver of about 65 years of age.  He had been soaked in formaldehyde for about 6 months or longer.

He was grossly overweight.  There was a layer of fat under the skin that was quite thick.

When we opened the chest cavity, the first thing I could smell was cigarette smoke.   The lungs were coal black.  They were jet black from the inside all the way to the outside without interruption. 

By contrast, normal lungs are pink in color, like lips.   And this is an important point.

I don't think I have to convince you, warning signs about the toxic effect of cigarettes are even on labels.  I do not think anyone with a shred of rationality is going to argue that smoking is good for you.

Increased risk for gum disease is just one more reason to quit smoking!
