Smoking and your oral health

Today all of us would be aware that smoking is hazardous to our health.  But did you know that smoking can have a hugely adverse effect on your teeth and gums?

Smoking causes some of the biggest dental problems, including infection, gum inflammation, chronic bad breath, tooth discolouration, teeth loss, and ultimately cancer of the mouth.

The best way we can help is to advise you to quit smoking.  Smoking makes any kind of treatment for dental problems difficult, and maintaining oral health virtually impossible.

The Penshurst Dental team encourages you to quit smoking and start to enjoy the feeling of clean teeth and a fresh healthy mouth.
