Smoking Cessation

Smoking Cessation

So many people that have loose teeth say they had no idea that smoking leads to bone loss around the teeth. Our Dental Hygienist is a trained Smoking Cessation Councillor and she can explain how this occurs and assess your mouth with your radiographs and determine how quickly the smoking habit is affecting your mouth.

If you are ready to stop smoking the Dental Hygienist can give you advice but if you are a happy smoker we need to tell you how much your mouth has been affected but we accept it is your choice to smoke and you will not be judged.

There is little research available yet regarding E cigs and vaps but the flavored variety are being linked to tooth decay and it is unknown how harmful they are in the mouth regarding gum disease and mouth cancer but early research is also linking the nicotine to bone loss.
