We all know that smoking is bad for our health, so it should not be surprise that cigarettes and chewing tobacco are also harmful to your oral health. Tobacco products can cause stained teeth, bad breath, a dulled sense of taste and smell, gum disease, difficulty healing after oral surgery or tooth extractions, and cancer of the mouth.
Quitting is the only way to mitigate these risks, but the addictive quality of nicotine, one of the many ingredients of cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco, makes this difficult. At Sweet Tooth, we advocate creating a plan in conjunction with friends or a support network – someone to help you stick to the plan. Write down your reasons for quitting. Create a health plan that includes daily exercise to help motivate you and keep you busy. Using chewing gum as a replacement can also help.
Sweet Tooth Dentistry is committed to helping you in your battle with nicotine addiction, and to provide guidance regarding the medications available as well as referrals to other medical professionals who can assist with your goal of stopping the use of tobacco products.
What Our happy clients Are Saying…
“Dr Margaux Grason is awesome. She knew exactly what I was looking for & answered all my questions very well.”
Dr. grason was great. she was very quick and very thorough. I’ve had bad experiences with other dentists over-diagnosing and she only recommended what was necessary. 😉
This was a very pleasant experience! Great staff, great service! Will definitely recommend them!
Wait time was short. Staff was super friendly and very good at keeping things not-awkward, which is always a worry. Dr. Grason was great. Down-to-earth doctor, but seemed super capable.
Dr.Margaux was great. She was very professional and took the time to not only explain but show me through photos and x-rays what I needed to get done. She was extremely pleasant and I plan on returning to her for my next appointment.
I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and was a bit nervous. Dr. Margaux couldn’t have been nicer and I felt really at ease. The hygienists were really great, too. Definitely recommend.
