Did you or a loved one make a New Year’s Resolution to quit smoking in 2016? If so, that’s a great idea for many reasons.
Kicking the tobacco habit is not just good for your body, but good for your oral health as well. Smoking is responsible for bad breath and stains the enamel on your teeth. Besides the smell and less than pearly white smile, smoking can cause other serious health conditions as well. The carcinogens found in cigarettes are associated with an increased risk of oral cancer, which can be deadly. Smoking and tobacco products can also lead to gum disease by affecting the attachment of bone and soft tissue to your teeth.
As with any addiction, breaking a tobacco habit may take some time. If you are able to kick the habit, it will quickly lead to better overall oral health. Your teeth will become whiter and less likely to decay. Most everyone desires whiter teeth, fresher breath, a healthier mouth with firmer gums. With help from your dental office, you can achieve all of these. No matter how many times you’ve tried in the past, it’s never too late to quit using tobacco. Ask us how to help kick the habit and reasons why it needs to be done soon.
