Is Smoking Destroying My Teeth?
Cigarette smokers are more susceptible to several cancers and chronic diseases like heart disease.
However, people often ignore the effects of cigarettes on teeth. Here’s how cigarettes damage your teeth.
Main takeaways: – Cigarette smoke slows blood circulation in gum tissue, thus causing gum disease.
– Cigarette smoke affects healthy cells, resulting in cancers of the lungs, stomach, mouth, throat, pancreas and tongue.
– Smoking facilitates plaque build-up and cavities and causes gum recession, loose teeth and tooth loss.
Quit or minimise smoking and clean your teeth twice daily. Also, visit the dentist for screening and cleaning.
