Smoking is…?

By: Smileway Dental

Smoking may be legal but that doesn’t mean it’s good for us! In fact, it’s just the opposite: smoking is the only legal consumer product that kills you when you use it exactly how it’s meant to be used! That’s pretty scary, isn’t it?

• The Effects of Smoking on the Body

No matter how you smoke it, tobacco is dangerous to your health. There are no safe substances in any tobacco products, from acetone and tar to nicotine and carbon monoxide. The substances you inhale don’t just affect your lungs. They can affect your entire body.

• 10 Reasons Smoking Is Bad For You

1) Is known to cause cancer
2) Leads to formation of wrinkles and premature ageing
3) Weakens your heart, putting you twice at risk of suffering from a heart attack and stroke
4) Ruins your lungs lowering your stamina and lung capacity
5) Can cause premature ejaculation and lowers libido
6) Is a leading cause for erectile dysfunction
7) Makes your bones brittle
8) Stains your teeth
9) Causes bad breath
10) Can make you go blind

• Why Is Smoking So Bad for Your Teeth?

Smoking cigarettes doesn’t just damage teeth — it can even destroy them.

• What Are the Effects of Smoking to Your Teeth?

Your teeth grip the cigarettes you smoke and come in direct contact with the dangerous toxins you inhale when you take a drag. It’s little surprise they’re harmed so severely by tobacco.

• Symptoms of serious tooth problems may include:

-Yellow or Browning of the Teeth
-Bleeding Gums
-Buildup of Calculus Hardened Plaque
-Tooth Decay
-Dry Mouth

These symptoms often lead to even greater side effects from smoking, such as:
-A Grater Need for Root Canals
-Loss of Teeth
-Damaged Tooth Enamel

• What Are the Effects of Smoking to Your Gums?

Tobacco causes problems with the gums that range from cosmetic to downright painful. Using tobacco in any form, including cigarettes and chewing tobacco, can increase the tartar buildup in your mouth and decrease the flow of saliva, which washes away harmful bacteria.

When you smoke, you may notice problems developing with your gums, such as:
-Tenderness And Redness
-Blood When Brushing Your Teeth Or Flossing
-Loosening Of Teeth
-Pus Oozing Between Teeth
-Pain When Chewing
-Foul Breath
-Looser Fit For Denture
-Receding Gum Line

• How To Stop Smoking, Steps To Manage Quit Day

-Make A Quit Plan
-Stay Busy
-Avoid Smoking Triggers
-Stay positive
-Ask For Help

The response from time of my asking for an appointment (though last minute) was handled well. Staff was ensuring that if I couldn't make the 5pm appointed time then she offered to reschedule. So I did for the next day. Dr Edwin was super nice and gave options to see that my swollen due to infection gum was treated with care. I only visit this clinic because of its professionalism. Cheers guys and keep up the great job ! Thanks.

People with dental phobia like me have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but with extensive experience in the field of dentistry, Dr Lisa provides efficient and compassionate patient care. I just had my tooth extraction this morning and it was painless.... Furthermore Dr Lisa are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unnecessary treatment. Thank you so much Dr Lisa 🙏
My regular clinic, Dr Edwin is very patient and professional. Nurse all so friendly and helpful.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven't.
