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.

• 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

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.
