Tobacco and Your Teeth:The Risk of Chewing and Smoking

Jun 12, 2023
Sunflower

Tobacco chewing and smoking are known to cause serious health concerns, particularly in the lungs. However, the risks to your mouth and teeth might be just as serious. Stop smoking if you do. Here's what smoking may do to your teeth.

Chewing Tobacco

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) estimates that smokers have a 50 percent increased chance of developing cheek and gum cancer. Smoking destroys the gums, exposing the roots, and resulting in irritation. Additionally, this provides the perfect environment for bacteria to flourish and cause deterioration. Stop chewing tobacco and seek advice from our professional oral health staff on how to maintain a healthy mouth.

Smoking

According to AGD research, smoking one pack a day can cause you to lose two teeth every ten years of your life. The probability of tooth loss increases when you smoke. Both cigarettes and cigars are bad for your teeth. Additionally, smoking can leave behind stains that make your teeth look ugly.

Oral Cancer

Oral cancer may develop anywhere in the mouth, including the tongue, lips, mouth floor, and gums. Men and women over the age of 50 are more likely to develop oral cancer. According to the AGD, however, oral cancer is on the rise, particularly among people under the age of 30.

Make an appointment with us for a thorough, comprehensive dental health examination, and if you smoke, ask us about an oral cancer screening. Our dentist examines your mouth, teeth, and cheeks for indications of abnormalities during oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer is curable if detected early.

We strongly encourage you to stop using cigarettes if you currently do. To quit smoking, you can work together with our qualified dental team and our doctor for guidance. Everyone should have regular oral health checks, but if you use cigarettes, you should be more attentive. Visit our office so that we can work with you to identify any potential problems.
