Why Does My Dentist Want Me to Quit Smoking ?

Why Does My Dentist Want Me to Quit Smoking ?

A variety of dental health concerns have been connected to smoking, adding to the growing list of ailments linked to smoking. Bad breath and tooth discolouration are the most obvious. On the other hand, smoking has been related to an increased risk of gum disease, jaw bone loss, and oral cancer.

We, as a group of dental professionals, highly advise you to stop smoking. Why?


  • Gum disease is twice as common among smokers as it is in non-smokers. Tobacco smoking is one of the most prominent risk factors for gum disease's development and progression.
  • Not only has smoking been related to an increased risk of gum disease, but it has also been shown to make gum disease therapy less effective. The most common cause of tooth loss is gum disease.
  • Gum disease has been connected to difficulties during pregnancy.
  • Gum disease has been related to various major health problems, including heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer.
  • Tobacco users account for at least 75% of the mouth, lips, tongue, and throat malignancies.
  • However, there is some good news. When a smoker stops smoking, the effects of the habit start to reverse almost immediately.
  • Even after years of tobacco use, reducing the quantity you smoke or quitting altogether can significantly reduce your health risks, even to the point of lowering your gum disease risk to that of someone who has never smoked!

Can you picture what life would be like if you didn't smoke? It's all possible for you to have better breath, whiter teeth, healthier gums, and improved health.
