Today our dental nurse Sheridan celebrates 6 months of being a non smoker. Not only does she feel healthier in general…just look at those lovely sparkly teeth!

Reasons to quit smoking from an oral health perspective…

Smoking and other tobacco products can lead to gum disease by affecting the attachment of bone and soft tissue to your teeth. Smoking interferes with the normal function of gum tissue cells. This interference makes smokers more susceptible to infections, such as periodontal disease, and also seems to impair blood flow to the gums – which may affect wound healing. Smokers are more likely to develop oral cancer too.

Oh and you pay £££’s for the privilege of being a smoker too.
