Smoking is Dangerous

Do you know there are 3 ways to smoke tobacco?

  1. Cigarettes
  2. E-cigarettes
  3. Hookah

Keep in mind they all have negative side effects in your mouth. Negative effects include staining, altering taste, oral malodor, increased risk for periodontal disease, dry sockets, and squamous cell carcinoma. The greatest risk is for oral cancer since the tobacco juices irritate the oral cavity.
