Smoking and Implants

Smoking can lead to premature tooth loss.

Numerous studies have shown that long-term tobacco use (cigarettes and chew) can contribute to periodontal (gum) disease, causing gums to recede and bone tissue to 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.

The nicotine intobacco causes contraction of small blood vessels, leading to an increased risk of healing issues.
