The Dangers of Smokeless Tobacco

Periodontal disease is not always the result of poor brushing or flossing habits. You may also need periodontal treatment in Naples if you use smokeless tobacco.

This video explains why smokeless tobacco is harmful to your oral health. When you place smokeless tobacco against your cheek and gums, it can inflame these tissues. As a result, your gums may recede from your teeth. Gum recession can invite bacteria to attack exposed tooth roots and damaged tissue. Individuals who use smokeless tobacco often require periodontal treatments to address their considerable oral health issues.

To protect your smile from periodontal disease, stop using all tobacco products and see a dentist for a complete oral examination. If periodontal treatment is necessary, your dentist can save your gums from further deterioration and your teeth from decay and extraction.
