Cigarette Smoking and Your Teeth

Continuing on with some bad habits you should break as soon as possible – first on our list:

Smoking Tobacco!!

Here are a few facts you may or may not know about smoking:

  • Smokers are 6 times more likely to have gum disease. Gums loosen and recede from teeth allowing teeth to fall out.
  • Smoking causes bad breath, stained teeth and tongue, and tooth decay.
  • Cigarette smoking can cause oral and other cancers and ultimately lead to death.

No one will argue with you that smoking cigarettes is an extremely difficult habit to break. Fortunately, there are a lot of options when you finally make that decision to quit. Hypnosis, the patch, electronic cigarettes – or just plain cold turkey. The most important thing is that YOU want to quit. And I know you can do it.
