How smoking effects your teeth

The effect of smoking on your teeth is right at the sharp end. Many studies have shown that smoking and using tobacco products has a detrimental effect on your teeth and gums. The problem is caused by the fact that tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, making smokers more prone to getting infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases.

Here’s what else is does; bad breath, stained teeth, jawbone loss, shrinking gums, mouth sores, decreased senses of taste and smell, poor healing of mouth sores and hairy tongue.

The risks of smoking

In worse case scenarios it can cause serious illness. Smoking is the main cause of mouth cancer, with thousands of people dying every year from mouth cancer brought on by smoking.

As dental professionals, it is important for us to tell you the risks of smoking and to help you to quit by giving you information and support. By cutting down and stopping smoking or using tobacco products your preventative care will benefit very quickly and you will notice changes in your mouth. It is essential that you come into the practice for regular check-ups so we can help you maintain good preventative care and give you advice and encouragement.
