Everyone knows how bad smoking can be for our health. But still, we continue to do it. Regardless of the outcomes of it. You must have seen a lot of advertisements cautioning people about the adverse effects of smoking but they mostly concentrate only on the cancerous part of it. What they do not inform you is smoking can have many adverse effects which you might not want to live with. Effects of smoking on oral health are one of the major causes of people visiting dentists often.
Having oral problems causes you to face a lot of pain but another thing is that this pain causes you to suffer in a public event or whenever you are out. It can be a public place or an intimate one. People talk and nobody can ever be happy about it. Comments on our body from any external being can have severe effects on us. How much ever we try to avoid being affected by such a thing, it doesn’t work. This physical problem slowly starts to turn into a mental one.
Now, if you are a smoker, you must be relating to the things that we are talking about. It’s not easy. And we, as dentists, know about it pretty well. We try to help you get rid of it but if you are not going to help yourself and start giving yourself a push, nobody will ever be able to help you. To start, you should know about your oral health. And to give you a better idea of it, let us tell you in a little bit detail about the adverse effects of smoking on oral health.
So here we give you the symptoms of having bad oral health:
1. Stained teeth
2. Bad breath (Halitosis)
You must be facing a lot of trouble in public areas if you have this. And to remove it from your mouth, you need to do something real soon. Don’t worry we’ll be telling you all about it.
3. Tooth loss
Okay, so this can truly be a nightmare. If you haven’t faced it yet, consider yourself lucky but if you have or you are starting to feel that your tooth is moving, rush to a good dentist near you.

It is something that can infect your gum severely and can destroy your jaw bone. This is something very serious and you need to be very well aware of it.

Food is life, isn’t it? So, why would anyone want to lose this amazing sense of taste that we were gifted with? Nobody could live a tasteless life and with nobody, we include you in it too.
