Tobacco Use And Oral Health
The use of tobacco products can lead to various health problems and, in some cases, fatal diseases. However, tobacco users don't realise the damage that smoking does to their mouth, gums and teeth. How smoking affects gums and teeth People who smoke are more likely to have gum disease. Smoking may change the type of bacteria in dental plaque, increasing the number of bacteria that are more harmful. It also reduces the blood flow in the gums and supporting tissues of teeth making them more likely to become inflamed.
