Background: To assess the effect of smoking on lip and gingival pigmentation and also to assess the relationship of pigmentation with periodontal parameters. Materials and Methods: 109 smokers and an equal number of control subjects who were nonsmokers in the age range of 35 – 44 years comprised the study sample. All the participants were assessed for pigmentation on lip and gingiva and a total periodontal status examination was done with measurements on gingival bleeding, probing depth and…

Biological Impact of the Ratio of E-Cigarette Liquid Base Constituents, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin, on Primary Human Melanocytes

It is demonstrated for the first time that EC base constituents possess the capacity to significantly activate melanogenesis in human melanocytes at nontoxic concentrations, with the dominant effect obtained at a PG/VG ratio of 80/20, indicative of a nonlinear response with increasing concentrations of PG.

Epidemiologic study of excessive oral melanin pigmentation with special reference to the influence of tobacco habits.

The prevalence of pigmentation was found to increase prominently during the first year of smoking but also to decrease to the level found among non-tobacco users about 3 years after cessation of smoking.

Clinical and microbiological effect of scaling and root planing in smoker and non-smoker chronic and aggressive periodontitis patients.

The inferior improvement in PD following therapy for smokers may reflect the systemic effects of smoking on the host response and the healing process, and the lesser reduction in microflora and greater post-therapy prevalence of organisms might reflect the deeper pockets seen in smokers and poorer clearance of the organisms.

Clinical and other risk indicators for early periodontitis in adults.

Gingival inflammation was associated with early periodontitis in this study of subjects with minimal attachment loss, and lower molar interproximal sites were frequently associated with inter Proximal attachment Loss, whereas lower bicuspid teeth were at risk for gingival recession on buccal surfaces.
