It is an established fact that smoking cigarettes can have serious adverse effects on general health. Smoking can also impact negatively on dental health. Stained teeth and tongue are just the more obvious results of smoking.
The habit can also lead to far greater problems including:
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
- Oral cancers
Check-ups at the dentist should be scheduled at least twice a year but more often for smokers as smoking increases “your chances for major oral health problems” including cancers.
