Smoking is the biggest cause of gum disease

Did you know that smoking is the biggest cause of gum disease which in turn is the most common reason for tooth loss in adults?

Smoking can change the type of bacteria in dental plaque, increasing the amount of harmful bacteria in your mouth whilst decreasing blood flow to the gums, causing inflammation and gum disease. By giving up smoking you will not only improve your oral health, but also your general health and your life expectancy. We do understand how difficult stopping smoking is and we will support you as much as we can with advice, guidance and encouragement.
