Serious Effects Of Cigarette Smoking

Cigarette smokers have a higher risk of developing different diseases. In addition to heart disease, asthma and stroke, smoking also destroys your teeth and cause serious dental health issues.

Key points:

– Cigarette smoke affects gum tissue and prevents blood circulation in the mouth, resulting in gum infections.

– Smokers have weaker immune systems, thus take longer to respond to treatments.

– With the plaque and tartar buildup, gum infections and recession, smokers are at a higher risk of tooth loss.

See your dentist for treatment and discuss oral cancer screening.
