More meth questions...
« on: February 13, 2017, 03:59:31 PM »
I don't know if this is the right section to ask this sort of question, but i have a question about dental hygiene when it comes to smoking meth.

I don't use much, and it had been a couple weeks since I last did, but only two days in my binge and I've noticed that the gums in between my teeth are detached from the tooth, to where I can move them back and forth with my tongue. I've tried looking into it, but couldn't quite find what I wanted, only people where the gums between the teeth completely disappeared, not just detached from the teeth.

Is this a concern that will only be made worse, or something that just comes with smoking meth and will go back to normal? What should I do to prevent my teeth and gums from being affected (other than the obvious answer, being to quit altogether)?

And is it true that the smoke itself is acidic making smoking the worst for your teeth, or is it just caused by the dry mouth alone?

I'm quite sure that this has nothing to do with Meth - Meth constricts the blood flow and thus severely inhibits the production of saliva.

Any ROA causes a dry mouth but certain cuts aggravate it further when smoked.

Often, meth users crave sweet drinks etc. and this is the worst combination - I irrigate my mouth very frequently and avoid sweet stuff if i use Meth.

What you have is an unrelated gum infection so get to a dentist/periodontist as soon as possible ... i found this via google:

Gingivitis is the initial inflammation of the gum tissues along the margins of the teeth. The gums appear irritated, red, swollen, and may bleed during brushing or flossing. Thankfully, gingivitis is completely reversible as it is just the inflammation of gum tissue due to presence of plaque bacteria.

Periodontitis is progressed gingivitis that has extended inflammation into more areas surrounding the tooth. Left untreated, periodontitis begins to lead to periodontal disease, as gum tissues detach from the tooth surface and bone levels around the tooth begin to recede.

yeah, I agree now. short term chronic use probably can aggravate or cause gum issues.
