How early can gingival recession occur from using Snus tobacco?

I just recently started using the new smokeless tobacco product Snus. I have heard that it can cause gingival recession. I am not a consistent user. I use about two packets a day about 3-4 days a week. Sometimes I do not even use all week. How early can gingival recession occur? Please let me know. I use tobacco as a stress-reliever, having a huge amount of stress in my life. Please be serious about the answers, I will report any inappropriate answers. Thank you very much.

Andrew, Yes snus can and does cause recession. The tobacco in the snus causes the capillaries to constrict, decreasing blood flow, which can and does cause the tissue to recede. As stated before, snus use is strongly related to mouth cancer. This is a very messy cancer that typically causes disfiguring destruction to the mouth. Please, find another way to relieve your stress. Small white patches where you use the snus are actually precancerous changes! Stopping NOW will greatly reduce your risks. Good Luck, Dr. Dan  (+ info)

Can anybody tell me how effective a gingival graft is?

I am considering a free gingival graft to add tissue to an exposed lower tooth. If you or someone you know has had this procedure done, how effective was it at covering up the exposed area? Also, how painful was the procedure and are you satisfied?

I and many others have come to believe that gum disease comes from bacteria and imbalances in the mouth. I have been able to heal gums and tootheaches and unfilled cavities. I took a water pik(they are generrally about $60) and an antibacterial solution of some sort. I like using Xylitol(you can find at most health food stores) as an antibacterial lately.

I started on a mild setting and found which areas were sensitive or bleeding. I used it about once to twice a week. Even after just two uses the teeth and gums become much less sensitive and I was able to turn up the power of the jet. It might not be the same for you, but for me it is always worth trying anything that activated the body into healing itself than to force, cut, burn, or poison which is usually very temporary.  (+ info)

How long after concussions do brain hemorrhage occur?

I had concussion about 5 days ago, My head has stopped hurting and I feel fine, the spot on my head is still a bit soft but almost back to normal, I did not go to the hospital. I just want to be safe, none of the hemorrhage symptoms, do you think I'll be fine?

At any point. That's just it there is no way of knowing. A clot could be formed and something like a hit to the head could jog it lose. Head aches are warning signs. Most likly though you'll be fine just you NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR concussions can KILL YOU!  (+ info)

I had a postpartum hemorrhage with my first child, what are the chances of it happening again?

I had a baby 4 months ago, and had a postpartum hemorrhage. It was really severe, and had to have 2 blood transfusions and 2 surgerys, I almost lost my life because of it. I really want to have another baby some day, what are my chances of this happening again?

If they used pitocin to augment your labor it could have caused the hemorrhage.

If it happened during a natural labor (no drugs whatsoever) then I would think you would be at risk.

Most hospital births cause more problems than they solve. Find out the cause of the problem and try to prevent it. Inform yourself and settle for nothing short of the best care for you next time.  (+ info)

Subconjunctival hemorrhage - How fast should your eye get red?

Three days ago I woke up with a small portion of the white of my eye bloodshot. I assume this is Subconjunctival hemorrhage, but I have never had it before this incident. My question is, how fast does your eye get red? Should it happen immediately? My redness has stayed the same during the day, but each day since when I wake up there is more of it, so it appears to be happening overnight (three days running now).

Is it bloodshot, meaning lots of big looking red vessels, or is there a patch of red, like a pool of blood? If it's a patch, it's a subconjunctival hemorrhage and it can spread over the eye and then eventually thin out and reabsorb. Generally it will run it's course within 7 to 10 days. If it's just bloodshot, it's something different. In either case, you should probably see your doctor for clarification and any necessary treatment.  (+ info)

Im 11 weeks pregnant, plan on having abortion but I have a hemorrhage What are the risks of having the abortio?

Im scared to have the abortion because i have a hemorrhage on the lining of my uterus. What are the risks involved with having the abortion?

don't let these people bother you by calling you names. they do not know your situation and they have not walked in your shoes. they show their ignorance by the things that they say. you do not owe ANYONE an explanation and certainly no anonymous coward on the internet. I can promise you that each of them have skeletons in their own closets that others would gladly crucify them for. U don't need to worry about safety. It is completely safe-safer than childbirth. they DO NOT suck the fetus out in pieces either-not at that early stage. I guess ignorance is bliss for some of these people. At the stage you are in it is just like having a heavy period. That is all. Talk to your DOCTOR if you are concerned. DO NOT rely on scare tactics from people who have no information to start with.  (+ info)

Can someone explain a brain hemorrhage to me please?

when i was 8 in 2002 my mum had a brain hemorrhage and i didn't really understand it. and i still don't, can someone explain please?

Intracerebral hemorrhage is focal bleeding from a blood vessel in the brain parenchyma. The cause is usually hypertension. Blood from an intracerebral hemorrhage accumulates as a mass that can dissect through and compress adjacent brain tissues, causing neuronal dysfunction. Large hematomas increase intracranial pressure. Cerebellar hematomas that are > 3 cm in diameter may cause midline shift or herniation. Herniation, midbrain or pontine hemorrhage, intraventricular hemorrhage, acute hydrocephalus, or dissection into the brain stem can impair consciousness and cause coma and death.

If you have more question, u can post them in:

My dad has a vitreous hemorrhage. What to do so he can regain his vision?

A vitreous hemorrhage is when a blood vessel ruptures in the retina. His vision has depleted tremendously and he can't judge where things are on top of that. If anyone can help, it would be very appreciated.

Is he also diabetic? Is it in one eye?
I am not an expert by any means but from I have come across regarding retinal conditions i have learned that the eye can clear up at least some of the blood floating in the vitreous but that takes at least a month. Again, I might be totally wrong.
What I am sure of is that if the vitreous does not clear up on its own or that vision is still very poor out of that eye after a few months, then a vitrectomy is an option.
Vitrectomies can lead to more eye problems but will usually restore vision.  (+ info)
