Sunnyvale Dentist Explains Negative Effects of Tobacco Use

April 14, 2017

Your Sunnyvale dentist wants you to recognize the dangers of tobacco use.

You started smoking cigarettes around the time you were in high school. It quickly became a part of your personality. At some point, you developed a bad sore throat and thought, “Oh my God, please don’t let this be cancer.” You decided to quit for the first time. After your throat got better, one stressor leads to another and you decided to switch to the tin of chewing tobacco rather than squares. Sounds too familiar, right? Ultimately, you gave into your addiction and justified it with, “It’s my only bad habit.” Your Sunnyvale dentist understands how difficult it can be to quit using tobacco, we run into patients that use it all the time! However, that does not make it any better for either your general or oral health. If you think that going smokeless is better for you, think again. Tobacco—no matter what form—is chipping away at your well-being.
