Smoking and Implants

In its most recent report, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated in 1991 that more than 100,000 cases of facial trauma occurred in children younger than 14 while they participated in sports activities.
With all of the detrimental effects of smoking, did you know that it also can lead to premature tooth loss?

Numerous studies have shown that long-term tobacco use (cigarettes and chew) can not only cause periodontal (gum) disease, cause gums to recede and bone tissue to gradually disintegrate.

People who have dental implants are strongly discouraged from smoking, because smoking can cause acute tissue inflammation near the place where the implant is anchored to the jaw, which can cause the implant to eventually fail. This condition is called “peri-implantitis.”
