Quit Smoking To Save your Smile
As well as increasing the risk of developing serious chronic diseases, smoking can have a detrimental effect on your oral health.
– Smoking can result in heavily stained teeth and gum disease, and is also a risk factor for oral cancer.
– Other benefits to quitting smoking include looking younger, saving money and living for longer.
– Your dentist or doctor can provide support to help you quit for good and provide advice on recognising triggers and managing cravings.
If you’ve considered quitting tobacco before, there’s never been a better time to do so! It’s the best thing you can do for your health.
