Smoking and Your Oral Health

Smokers have a two to threefold higher risk of developing a chronic oral health condition which, while not life-threatening, can be extremely uncomfortable. Some studies have found that the risk of developing the disease increases the longer a person smokes. Read more about it here….


Bad breath, stained teeth and damaged gums are some of most obvious effects of smoking. Using tobacco increases the risk of periodontitis, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and your teeth to fall out.


Smoking is the number one culprit for yellow stained teeth. The tar that is inhaled through smoking settles in the miniscule cracks in tooth enamel, causing discoloration and that yellow staining.


No one likes going to the dentist, but if you smoke, it is more likely you will get an infection in your gums and it will take longer for everything to heal. Gum disease (gingivitis) is a real issue as smoking affects the gums in a few ways. It causes damage to the gum tissues, the gums recede and this is the primary cause of tooth loss. This exposure of the teeth makes it easier for decay to develop and eat away at the teeth.


The poor tongue and lips are in the way of the smoker
