Smoking Cessation In Bromley

Smoking Cessation

Pharmacist in Dental Practice

Registered dental practices must achieve all the essential standards of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), whose outcome 9 is focused entirely on the way practices manage medicines. This is of particular importance.

We have an experienced pharmacist, Nina as part of our team. Her sole objective is ‘medicines management’. Her work underpins the delivery of quality patient outcomes from safe and effective use of medicines, improvement of service efficiency and adherence to medicines regulations. Working together has meant safe, effective and legal patient-focused medicines management in practice.

Smoking is linked specifically to a range of oral diseases, including periodontal disease and oral cancer. Our pharmacist will counsel and encourage smokers to stop smoking, advise on ‘quit strategies’ and give information on cessation support services and nicotine replacement therapy.

Along with well-documented effects on your general health, smoking causes many dental health problems. Smoking is one of the main causes of oral cancer, which can affect any of the soft tissues in the mouth, including lips, cheeks and tongue. Other effects of smoking on your dental health include:
  • ZBad breath
  • ZBrown staining of the teeth
  • ZSores in the mouth
  • ZAltered sense of taste and smell
  • ZGum disease
  • ZShrinking or receding gums
  • ZSnoring

Smokers also have more tartar, or hardened dental plaque, on their teeth, which can lead to decay and even tooth loss.

If you are a smoker and feel ready to quit, we can provide you with smoking cessation advice and support – as well as treating any dental problems your smoking may have caused. As dentists we are well-placed to identify problems caused by smoking, and we can also diagnose, advise and refer patients to smoking cessation services.

Smoking cessation services are available on the NHS, so you may be referred to your GP or to a specialist smoking cessation clinic. There you may be prescribed nicotine-replacement products.

Example nicotine-replacements

  • ZNicotine patches
  • ZInhalators
  • ZChewing gum
  • ZNose or mouth spray
  • ZLozenges
  • ZPrescription drugs that counteract nicotine cravings
These can help to reduce the side-effects of nicotine withdrawal, including irritability, difficulty concentrating, and cravings for cigarettes. Often, particularly if you are a heavy smoker, it helps to combine more than one of these products.

Even if you don’t feel ready to stop smoking yet, smoking cessation services can also help you cut down on smoking with a view to giving up in the future. Please speak to one of our team if you are interested in stopping or cutting down on smoking cigarettes, cigars or pipe tobacco.
