Nicotine is a potential destroyer of the wellbeing of mouth and teeth. It contracts the blood vessel and reduces the blood flow to the gums and bone. Decreased blood supply results can conceal the symptoms of the disease and weakens the ability of the body to fight any infection. Moreover, other chemicals in the cigarettes merged with plaque bacteria produce a dangerous combination.

People who make smoking as their daily habit are six times more prone to periodontal disease. In an advanced gum disease, teeth become loose and require tooth extraction. Smoking can mask the symptoms of periodontal disease for years and the disorder can be very progressive before a smoker observes any damage.

The best thing to do is never engage in smoking or if you already did, stop the deadly habit while there’s time left. Oral cancer is often fatal that you wouldn’t want to experience such condition.
