Cleaning smoke compounds (nicotine, tar, etc.) to keep the tooth surface bright and with its natural whiteness.

Oral Care: The incidence of smoke components on the gums, teeth and saliva, requires an accurate oral care. The ingredients contained in DentYucral Smokers formula have been specially selected for its properties to meet these needs.

Cleaning action: DentYucral Smokers cleans the teeth surface through Micronized cleaning particles specially chosen for this formulation To remove the different smoke compounds and plaque adhered to the teeth is necessary to use highly effective ingredients without damaging dental enamel.

The hardness and size of these particles have been specially adjusted to be harder than the substances to be cleaned but softer than tooth enamel. That means a powerful cleaning ability but gentle with teeth, leaving them shiny, polished and with their natural whiteness.

Strengthning action: DentYucral Smokers with Calcium and Vitamins (to improve its absorption), strengthens teeth and surround tissues that support them.

ON THE GUMS

Smokers suffer 4 times more from gum disease than non-smokers. Smoking is a direct factor that accelerates gingivitis by different mechanisms: Increasing the formation of dental plaque and tartar and lowering the body resistance against bacteria causing a greater destruction on teeth. In addition, smoke produces an inhibition of gingival microcirculation reducing the supply of oxygen to the cells and the flux of nutrients necessary for the proper response to gingival inflammation. The vessel constriction effect makes that the gum doesn’t bleed so smokers cannot see the progress of gingivitis. Smoke constituents can destroy 40% of vitamin C we ingest.

DentYucral Smokers ingredients help regenerate the gums through:

Restoring action: Helps to keep the necessary levels of Vitamin C for the repair and maintenance of gum tissues, blood vessels, bones and teeth.

Anti-irritation action: Smoke components irritate the gums. In order to help them recover, Dentyucral Smokers’ ingredients help to accelerate the process of dental epithelial cells renewal.

Antiseptic action: Dentyucral Smokers contains  natural antiseptics to help eliminate the microorganisms that cause dental plaque and inhibit its proliferation. Its long-lasting effect avoids acidity and keeps the mouth free of bad breath caused by plaque. We have also included other active principles with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-ulcer properties, among others, very useful in the treatment of gingival inflammation and periodontal disease.

Blood flow improvement: The natural origin ingredients, with anti-inflammatory and venotonic properties, improve blood flow and the supply of nutrients to the gums.

Emollient and healing action: The emollient action of DentYucral Smokers helps hydrate and restore oral epithelium, helping to accelerate small wounds healing and mouth ulcers.

ON SMOKER’S BAD BREATH

The main causes of smoker’s bad breath are:

The adhesion of smoke components to the mouth tissues.

Alterations in the quantity and quality of saliva and the oral flora.

Increase of dental plaque.

Gum disease promotes the formation of deep pockets where anaerobic bacteria and plaque accumulate, delivering sulfur particles that cause bad breath.

DentYucral Smokers helps prevent bad breath, with antiseptic components, such as CPC, that acts against anaerobic bacteria helping to curb the proliferation of dental plaque with prolonged effectiveness. Besides, DentYucral Smokers clean smoke chemicals from the tooth surface and has a pleasant mint flavor for a fresh breath.

TOBACCO AND ORAL HEALTH

The mouth of the smoker receives 800 impacts of smoke constituents per pack of cigarettes smoked.

(20 puffs per cigarette = 20 inhalations and 20 exhalations) x 20 cigarettes are 800 hits.

Apart from the high frequency of impacts we have to add the characteristics of almost 4,000 compounds contained in smoke. These factors can explain the effects of these compounds on the different parts of the mouth, which are described as follows:

The mouth cavity

Increase of dental plaque formation, delayed wound healing, alterations in the composition and pH of saliva, “smoker’s breath”, etc.

Teeth

Formation of stains and more incidence of cavities, especially “root caries”.

Gums and periodontum

Tobacco consumption increases the risk of gum disease (gingivitis) 400% and promotes the advance of periodontitis (especially “refractory” periodontitis).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO IS IT FOR? Smokers by country can vary between 20% to 45% of the population over 16 years. Hence, the potential market for DentYucral Smokers is particularly broad.

HOW IS IT PRESENTED? DentYucral Smokers is commercialized in toothpaste presentation with 75ml enough for approximately 75 uses.

HOW TO USE IT? Spread enough toothpaste on the toothbrush and brush normally during 2-3 minutes.

PERIODONTAL DISEASE IN SMOKERS

Smokers have a higher prevalence and severity of periodontitis, deeper periodontal pockets and more severe bone loss. Smokers’ gums usually look pale and long-term smokers, suffer increased loss of supporting bones, affecting their smile as dark spaces appear between the gum and the tooth.

Smokers are 2.5 to 6 times more likely to develop periodontal disease than non-smokers. The habit of smoking has also an adverse effect on wound healing, because increases the risk of alveolitis (postoperative pain after periodontal surgery or tooth extraction).

In addition, tobacco hides gums inflammation making bleeding less noticeable despite being inflamed. Many people with gum problems notice an increase in bleeding during brushing after reducing the consumption of tobacco. Another negative point is that heavy smokers frequently develop bad breath and a hard, pale or white palate combined with multiple red dots.

For all these reasons, if smokers do not carry out a proper dental hygiene, they increase twice the risk of tooth loss in ten years, than non-smokers.

Smokers oral care can reduce the damage caused by smoke chemicals in the mouth significantly, so it is especially important to keep the follow up.
Is advisable that smokers take care of their mouth at two levels:

Professional level:
With periodic reviews (paying special attention to the gums) and a professional cleaning, with the frequency that their dentist recommends (usually every six months).

Personal level:
A daily oral care reduces the presence of nicotine, tar, etc. in the mouth. With the removal of these substances we reduce their negative effects, not only on teeth but also on the oral mucous, and help the mouth to recover from the damaging effects of tobacco smoke compounds.
