How Tobacco Affects Your Oral Health

Using tobacco products can negatively affect your oral health. Not only do they stain your teeth, but they also cause bad breath.

Smoking or using chewing tobacco can also lead to gingivitis, which is the first stage of periodontal disease. It can also cause leukoplakia, which are whitish, thick patches on the gums, the tongue, and the cheek. Prolonged use might also cause oral cancer. Learn more in this video.
