How Tobacco Affects Your Oral Health

Using tobacco is not known to be a healthy habit. This vice can have a negative impact on your oral health as well as your general health. Watch this video to find out how tobacco affects your oral health.

Whether you are using cigarettes, cigars, or smokeless tobacco, you are damaging your oral health. Ingredients like nicotine and tar can stain your teeth and cause bad breath. Tobacco use can also lead to gingivitis, which causes swollen gums that are prone to bleeding. If you notice a thick, white patch on your tongue or the inside of your cheek, talk to a doctor immediately; it may be a sign of oral cancer.
