Do you know what happens when you put off going to the dentist?
Smoking can affect the health of the body in many ways including dental health. Not only will it cause staining on the teeth, but also can cause bad breath, increased plaque and tartar, bone loss, inflammation in the mouth and salivary glands, as well as increase the risk of cancer and gum disease leading to tooth loss. However, you can decrease the occurrences of all of these risk factors once smoking is stopped. Regular dental visits will also help reduce and treat what damage has been done.
