How Tobacco Compromises The Oral Health Of Smokers

There are many health risks associated with smoking, including several linked to poor oral health.

Key takeaways:

– Chemicals in cigarettes compromise the immune system, making smokers more likely to get infections and diseases affecting teeth and gums.

– A weaker immune system means smokers are less likely to respond well to dental treatment.

– Smokers are more likely to lose teeth and are not good candidates for dental implants to replace lost teeth.

– Cancer rates are higher among smokers for both oral and non-oral cancers.

To prevent major health issues, smokers are advised to seek the support of a doctor or a dentist when quitting this habit.
