Researchers have found that good oral health promotes good overall health. Basically the way you treat your mouth and gums will have an impact on your health. If you don’t take care of your mouth and teeth, problems could show up elsewhere. One of the prime examples is from people smoking. Smoking has been shown to possibly create health problems throughout the body, including your teeth.
Smokers have been found to have problems with teeth and gums. These problems could lead to additional health problems, all related to smoking. While stopping smoking is a difficult habit to break, it is important to try to stop or cut back on the amount of cigarettes that you smoke. By stopping you have the opportunity for your body, including the health of your mouth and teeth, to get back to a healthier level.
To help learn more about the potential problems that smokers face in regards to oral health, we have assembled a collection of pages to review. We hope this information helps you, or a smoker you know, have better oral health.
