dentists Smoking and chewing tobacco are dangerous to your oral health and to your overall health. In addition to contributing to tooth loss through gum disease, tobacco use may also lead to serious problems such as oral cancer.

Depending on the amount of tobacco use, smokers can expect to develop a combination of the following:
dental education Persistent bad breath
dental education Discoloured teeth
dental education An increase in calculus tarter build-up
dental education Gum and bone disease that may progress more quickly and be more severe than in non-smokers
dental education Jaw bone loss
dental education Shifting teeth
dental education An increased number of missing teeth
dental education Oral cancers
dental education Mouth sores
dental education Root caries cavities
dental education Sinusitis
dental education Altered sense of taste and smell
dental education Delayed wound healing

Smoking has been established as a significant risk factor for gum disease. Tobacco reduces blood flow to the gums, depriving them of oxygen and nutrients that allow gums to stay healthy, and leaving them vulnerable to bacterial infection.

If left unchecked, gum disease can lead to the destruction of the tooth’s supporting tissues, abscesses and tooth loss.
