I have heard that smokers have a higher risk of developing different dental health problems. I know smoking can stains your teeth and causes bad breath. What I am wondering is how does smoking cause cavities and gum disease? What may be other dental health side effect from smoking ?
Please I only want to know about the dental side of this issue. I have a friend that I care for who is a smoker. She knows the health risks but does not care. She does care about her teeth but does not think smoking is bad for them since she able to keep the white with whiting strips.
