Share of Cost – Smoking
Smoking Kick the Habit: Just in case you need yet another person in your life to explain why you need to quit smoking? Talk to your dentist. The nicotine and tar in cigarettes are not only turning your teeth an unsightly shade of yellowish brown, but they are eating away at your gums.
Smoking creates a ripe environment for bacteria and plaque on your teeth and along the gum lines. And that harms tissue and eventually increases your risk of tooth loss. Tobacco chemicals can also cause mouth sores that could turn into cancer. Extra dental care at your dentist will be needed if you are not going to quit smoking.
