Risks Of Smoking During Orthodontic Treatment

Doctor in background breaking cigaretteWe’ve all heard that smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco can be damaging to our health in many ways. Smoking causes several problems for the lungs and throat, but can also negatively impact your mouth, teeth, and dental health.

Smoking During Orthodontic Treatment

Smoking has been proven to contribute to gum disease and periodontitis. In addition, smoking can also cause the following:

  • Risk of oral cancer
  • Stained, yellow teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Plaque or tartar buildup
  • Delayed healing time
  • Gum disease and periodontitis
  • Teeth staining around the brackets

Smoking during your orthodontic treatment can reduce your mouth’s ability to fight off tooth decay, and plaque and tartar buildup. Here at Kuhni Orthodontic studio, we recommend quitting smoking before your orthodontic treatment so that you’re able to enjoy your new straight and beautiful smile.

For more information on keeping your teeth healthy during orthodontic treatment, please contact Kuhni Orthodontic Studio today. Our affordable orthodontic office is located here in Spanish Fork, Utah.
