  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Time for a Change

It is the end of the year and the time that many people start to think about goals and resolutions for the New Year. You might be thinking of implementing a new workout routine, dropping a few pounds, or quitting smoking. At Drs. Smith & Domingue, we are here to support you in any way we can with your goal of quitting tobacco for good.

If you use tobacco, you have probably heard the list of health repercussions involving heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and respiratory illness, but you may not have heard about periodontal disease, oral and bladder cancer, and bone loss that can occur due to smoking and tobacco use.

Periodontal disease – Smoking makes you more susceptible to gum disease. Not only are you introducing toxins to the delicate tissues of your mouth day after day, but it also makes you have dry mouth, which contributes to gum disease.

Oral and bladder cancer – Eight out of ten people who are diagnosed with oral cancer have a history of tobacco use. Tobacco use also dramatically increases your chances of bladder cancer as the toxins travel through your saliva and eventually reach your bladder. People who use tobacco may notice frequent occurrences of urinary tract infections.

Bone loss – Smoking has been a known risk factor in osteoporosis for more than twenty years. The longer you smoke and the more cigarettes you consume, the greater your chances of a fracture. Even exposure to secondhand smoke can increase your risk of osteoporosis. The best way to protect yourself from fractures is to quit smoking right away and eat a diet high in calcium and vitamin D. Also, be sure to discuss bone loss with your doctor so that you can receive the best support possible.

We know that you have many reasons to quit smoking and we can help steer you to the resources that make it easier such as counseling, patches, nicotine gum, and prescription medication. We will be happy to discuss how quitting today can improve your health for the rest of your life. 

Once you quite for good, we can help you decide on a teeth whitening system that will help restore the brightness of your smile.
