This actually should be no surprise to anyone. We know smoking is bad for your lungs. I have personally been present while a team opened
the chest cavity of a long term smoker’s cadaver. We could smell cigarette smoke! The lungs were coal black from the inside to the outside.

It was terrible to see.

If the smoke can do so much damage to lungs, it is fairly easy to see how it could affect your gum tissue as well. The smoke is toxic.

Gum disease is a problem that nearly 75% of people have. Smoking only makes it that much MORE likely that a problem will develop.

Smoking can kill you. Please don’t smoke.
