You know smoking is bad for you. So why not make 2024 the year you kick the habit? Your overall health will improve, and you’ll enjoy better oral health too.
We know it’s not easy to stop smoking. It might help to watch this short video, which explains some of the many ways your body will benefit. It doesn’t mention the dental benefits, but there are lots of those too:
- You’ll lower your risk for gum disease, cavities, tooth loss, and oral cancer.
- You’ll no longer suffer from chronic dry mouth or bad breath.
- Your smile will also look better, since nicotine won’t stain your teeth.
We’re happy to help in any way we can. If you like that “fresh from the dentist” feeling you get from a professional cleaning, why not schedule a cleaning today? Once your teeth look and feel great, hopefully you’ll be inspired to keep them that way!
It’s also helpful to get rid of lighters, ashtrays, and cigarettes. For more tips, check out online resources from the CDC. You’ll find there’s even an app for that – quitSTART, available in the Apple Store or Google Play.
