Stop Smoking

As dental professionals it is necessary for us to keep you informed on the risks of smoking and to help you to quit by giving you the tools and support. Many studies have shown that smoking and the usage of tobacco products has a deteriorative effect on your teeth and gums. The problem is caused by the manner in which tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, making smokers more prone to infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases.

Some of the oral health problems caused by smoking are:

  • Bad breath.
  • Stained teeth.
  • Jawbone loss, shrinking gums and tooth loss.
  • Mouth sores, and poor healing of mouth sores.
  • Decreased senses of taste and smell

By stopping or cutting down smoking or use of tobacco products your oral health will benefit and you will notice changes in your mouth almost immediately. If you smoke, it is particularly important that you see your dentist for regular check-ups so that we can help you maintain good oral health and reduce the risk of tooth loss and mouth cancer. At Aura Dental, we are here to give you advice and encouragement.
