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

I recently had an appointment at Smileway Dental Clinic to address a persistent dental issue that had been causing me considerable discomfort. From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere of the clinic was warm and welcoming, which helped to alleviate some of my anxiety. Dr. Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure to me, which helped to alleviate my fears. Her calming demeanour and gentle approach immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was surprisingly painless, thanks to Dr. Lisa's expertise and skillful technique. She was incredibly patient and attentive throughout the entire procedure, constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. Overall, my experience at Smileway Dental Clinic was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Lisa and her team exceeded my expectations in every way, providing me with top-notch dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. I highly recommend Smileway Dental Clinic to anyone in need of dental services, especially those who may be anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist.
