Dental treatments like extractions, root canals, and implants have a high success rate, but a smoking habit could jeopardise the outcome of these and other treatments.
- Smoking affects the immune system, making it less able to fight infection and other possible complications.
- Tobacco use interferes with blood circulation, so swelling and delayed recovery are common among smokers.
- In some cases, the procedure may fail or may need to be reversed.
Save yourself the hassle by investing in the health of your teeth and gums. A chat with your dentist is a good first step toward quitting smoking.
