Smokers More Likely To Lose Their Teeth

A new study, published in the Journal of Dental Research, has determined that regular smokers have a significantly increased risk of tooth loss. The primary reason is thought to be periodontitis (AKA Gum Disease). Tooth loss is usually as a result of caries (tooth decay) or chronic periodontitis, since smoking is a strong risk factor for periodontitis this goes a long way towards explaining the higher rate of tooth loss in smokers.

What You Need to Know About Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

FYI - Your temporomandibular joint is the hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each ear. This joint lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side, so you can talk, chew and yawn.

If you have problems with your jaw, and the muscles in your face that control it, you have a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). On occasion you may hear it wrongly called TMJ, after the joint.
