At Sparkle Dental Boutique we actively promote oral health and provide advice about oral hygiene, healthy eating and smoking cessation. Smoking has a range of health implications, including an increased risk of oral health problems and we are on hand to support patients who wish to quit smoking.
Smoking increases the risk of gum disease and it also affects the appearance of the teeth. It is common for smokers to have stained, yellow teeth, which can look unhealthy and may affect your confidence when you smile. Smoking also slows the body’s natural healing process, which means that procedures come with greater risk and the recovery period takes longer. Smoking is also a major risk factor for oral cancer, a form of cancer that is becoming increasingly prevalent in the UK. Oral cancer survival rates have stalled and this is largely due to the fact that many people are unaware of the symptoms and causes and do not see their dentist until the cancer is at an advanced stage.
We want all our clients to have strong, healthy teeth and gums and we are here to help if you want to give up smoking. We offer advice and information about smoking cessation and can recommend products, support systems and services to help you to give up. We are always at the end of telephone line to offer advice and our friendly hygienists and dentists are on hand every step of the way to help you achieve your goal. Giving up smoking will not only boost your general and oral health and reduce your risk of a host of serious illnesses, it will also save you a huge amount of money and improve your appearance.
There are several different methods and services that can help you to give up smoking, including support groups, nicotine replacement methods and local stop smoking services. Contact the team at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Chiswick for more information about smoking cessation.
