Few things are as harmful to you as tobacco.
That’s true for both your overall and your oral health. As the American Dental Association video explains, tobacco users are more likely to have cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. They have a more difficult time treating those problems, and they are more likely to have recurring oral infections.
Using tobacco also stains your teeth. It doesn’t matter if you chew, dip, or smoke, it’s bad for your teeth and your mouth.
And in case you are wondering, vaping is bad for your mouth, too. While the effects of e-cigarettes are still being studied, the initial signs are not good for your smile.
