Throughout the years there have been numerous studies which show that smoking and using tobacco products has a real detrimental effect on teeth and gums. The root of the problem is the way in which tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, thus making smokers more prone to infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases. Listed below are some oral health problems which are caused by smoking:

  1. Bad breath.
  2. Stained teeth.
  3. Jawbone loss, shrinking gums and tooth loss.
  4. Mouth sores, and poor healing of mouth sores.
  5. Decreased senses of smell and taste.
  6. Mouth cancer.

As dental professionals at Dental fx, it is important for us to tell you the risks of smoking and to help you to stop by giving you the information and support you require. Your oral health will benefit very quickly by cutting down and stopping smoking or using tobacco products and you will begin to notice changes in your mouth almost immediately. It is most important that you come into the practice for regular check-ups so that we can help you maintain good oral health and we can give you advice and encouragement.
