The Risks of Tobacco Use

The tar and nicotine found in cigarettes and smokeless tobacco create a lot of problems for your oral health. Using these products significantly increases your risk of developing issues that require the attention of your dentist in Alpharetta.

Not only do these chemicals stain the teeth and lead to bad breath, but they can also make you more susceptible to gum disease. If you regularly use tobacco products, you might develop leukoplakia, which causes thick patches on the gums, the tongue, or the inside of the cheek.

One of the most serious risks associated with tobacco use is oral cancer. Watch this video to learn more about these risks and what they mean for your health.
