Cigarettes and your Teeth
Everybody knows that smoking wreaks havoc on your health. While your teeth may not be the first thing you think of when considering the dangers of smoking, any kind of tobacco use can bring some serious damage to your mouth.
Smoking leads to dental problems, including –
Increased loss of bone within the jaw,
Increased buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth,
Risk of leukoplakia- white patches inside mouth,
Delayed healing process following tooth extraction, periodontal treatment or oral surgery, etc.
