Chewing Tobacco and Its Effect on Your Oral Health

Chewing Tobacco and Its Effect on Your Oral HealthCountless millions use tobacco products every single day, and attempting to quit these habits will be one of the most difficult undertakings that anyone will ever go through. While many individuals realize just how damaging these substances can be to their body, they may not realize the toll it can take on the appearance of their smile and their oral health. Without the assistance of our Los Angeles dentist, those that chew tobacco will be at en extremely high risk of periodontal disease, tooth staining, tooth loss, dental decay, and oral cancer.

Tobacco products are filled with as many as 28 toxins according to recent studies carried out by the American Dental Association. These toxins will attack all parts of the teeth and gums and can lead to serious health complications. In order to avoid these conditions, all tobacco users should consider their options for quitting as well as contact our office for a number of essential dental services.

This includes a thorough dental cleaning in which our dentist will be able to remove some of the bacteria that are built up within the mouth that can cause serious damage to the teeth and gums. We will also closely inspect the mouth and take digital x-rays in order to detect serious ailments such as oral cancer in their earliest stages.

Effectively treating these oral health conditions often requires our dentist catching them as quickly as possible. This will allow us to create a unique plan of action to keep you and your teeth as healthy as possible.
