Why Quit Smoking Before a Dental Procedure

Did you know that smoking cigarettes can negatively impact the outcome of a dental procedure? In fact, there are even some cases when an operation may need to be performed again. Let us take a look at three reasons why now is a great time to finally kick this habit.

  •  Your teeth and gums will take longer to heal after a procedure.
  • The chances of an infection will rise as a result of smoking.
  • You could even experience more pain during and after a dental intervention.

“Research shows that smokers experience more pain following a dental procedure than non-smokers.”
