Are You Ready To Quit?

 
Bad breath, stained teeth, an increased risk of oral cancers... the oral health related reasons to end your relationship with tobacco is endless. May 31st is World No-Tobacco Day. If you were looking for a quit date, we can't think of a more definitive one on the calendar.

For more information about World No-Tobacco Day go here

If you've tried to give up a tobacco habit but had difficulty we may be able to help. Speak to us during your next visit. Whether you smoke or not, oral cancer screening should be an integral part of your routine dental exam. If we haven't seen your smile in a while you can request an appointment here.

Reminders:

May 13th is Mothers day, May 21st is Victoria Day. Both are great reasons to get together with family and friends and enjoy the season.


Wishing you countless reasons to smile,

Neil Hahn D.D.S. and
the High Park Dental Care Team





Smoking and Your Oral Health


 
We all know how bad smoking is for your overall health, but what about your oral health? Smoking has extremely detrimental effects on your mouth and teeth.

Some of the oral complications that can result from tobacco use include:
  • Increased risk of oral cancer
  • Increased the risk of gum disease
  • Gum tissue damage causing receding gums, exposed roots, increased sensitivity and decay
  • Bad breath
  • Stains that cannot be removed by brushing
  • Build up of tartar resulting in more frequently needed dental cleanings
  • Damaged sense of smell and taste
  • Delayed healing after dental procedures
