What Smoking Can Do to Your Smile

Smoking is not only hazardous to your general health, but also damaging to your teeth and gums. Smokers are far more likely to suffer from periodontal disease and tooth loss than non-smokers.

In this video, you'll see how periodontal disease puts your teeth at risk. You'll learn that smoking contributes to periodontal disease by reducing saliva production. Smoking also damages the body's natural immune response, making it easier for periodontal infections to take hold. Even if you receive periodontal treatment, continuing to smoke can inhibit your gums' ability to heal and fight off future infection.
