The Consequences of Using Tobacco

Smoking and using other forms of tobacco poses a serious threat to your oral health. The chemicals in tobacco cause bad breath, stained teeth, and increase the risk for periodontal disease.

One of the most dangerous side effects of tobacco use, though, is an increased risk of developing oral cancer. Tobacco can cause leukoplakia, which is a condition that causes white patches in the mouth that might develop into oral cancer. You can learn more about the consequences of tobacco by watching this video.

If you currently smoke or use tobacco, you should make an effort to quit to protect the aesthetic appeal and the health of your teeth and gums. Schedule an appointment for periodontal treatment in Naples to check on the condition of your mouth to make sure the tobacco has not already caused problems.
