Bad breath, stained teeth, an increased risk of oral cancers... the oral health related reasons to end your relationship with tobacco is endless.

Whether you smoke or not, oral cancer screening should be an integral part of your routine dental exam. If we haven't seen your smile in a while you can request an appointment here.

Smoking And Your Oral Health

We all know how bad smoking is for your overall health, but what about your oral health? Smoking has extremely detrimental effects on your mouth and teeth.

Some of the oral complications that can result from tobacco use include:
  • Increased risk of oral cancer
  • Increased the risk of gum disease
  • Gum tissue damage causing receding gums, exposed roots, increased sensitivity and decay
  • Bad breath
  • Stains that cannot be removed by brushing
  • Build up of tartar resulting in more frequently needed dental cleanings
  • Damaged sense of smell and taste
