Most people are aware that using tobacco products is harmful for your long-term health. What many don't realize is that it has a dramatic effect on your dental health, an extremely noticeable one.
As this video explains, use of tobacco products like cigarettes or chewing tobacco can stain your teeth and cause your gum tissue to become inflamed. It can also lead to dry mouth, a condition which prevents you from producing enough saliva. This increases the rate of decay in your mouth, which leads to more cavities. You can avoid these problems by not using tobacco products and by regularly visiting a reliable dentist.
