It's the start of the new year and we've made our resolutions. If your a smoker, then we have five good reasons to help you keep your resolution to quit.


1. If you quit smoking, then you'll reduce your risk of oral cancer.


2 Once you've quit smoking, your sense of taste and smell will return. You won't believe how good food tastes and smells. This is one of the reasons people tend to gain weight after quitting smoking...everything tastes so good that they can't stop eating.


3. Lower your risk of gum disease and tooth loss.


4. Your body heals better. When your body is not fighting off the toxins of smoking, then it has the ability to fight disease. An example of this would be the ability to absorb calcium better.


5. Improve the texture and appearance of your skin. Once you've stopped smoking, those wrinkles won't show up so fast.


Make this your year to get healthier and give us a call so we can help you achieve good oral health.
