How Cigarette Smoke Is Damaging Your Teeth

Research shows that smokers are at a higher risk of many different diseases and cancers, as well as dental problems.

Key points:

– Cigarette smoking damages gum tissue, resulting in gum recession, gingivitis, gum discolouration and loose teeth.

– Smoking causes oral cancer that affects the mouth, neck, throat and tongue.

– Smoking causes plaque and tartar buildup, causes cavities, tooth loss and gum recession.

Smokers should see your dentist regularly for oral cancer screening, cleaning and checkup. Non-smokers are also advised undergoing an annual oral cancer screening.
