If you smoke I’m sure you are aware of the implications this can cause to your health, however you may not be aware of the danger to your teeth and gums. Research shows that smokers are more likely to lose their teeth than those people that don’t smoke- this is because smoking causes destructive to the body on many levels.
Smoking depletes the immune system, causing the mouth to suffer from poor saliva levels, which is needs to fight bacteria. Smoking is also the cause of gum disease and multiplies the chance of a person getting it and continual smoking during the disease also plays havoc on the chances of recovery.
When you have acheived your goal and become smoke free, your dentist can help battle the problems that it caused to your teeth and gums by creating an oral-hygeine treatment plan for you.
Giving up smoking will not only boost your health, but also cut down the amount of times you are troubling your dentist with recurring problems caused by nicotine.Back to Blog
