How does smoking affect my mouth?

Smoking can have several effects on the oral cavity, including:

• Stained teeth • Decreased sense of taste and smell • Gum disease • Slow healing after a surgery or tooth removal • Oral cancer

Quitting is the only way to decrease these risks and prevent other tobacco-related health problems! It's so important to develop a plan and have a support network in your efforts to quit. Ask your dentist or doctor to see if there are any medications to help you stop using tobacco!
