Smoking and Implants

During the 1999/2000 academic year, there were 17,242 students enrolled in predoctoral education programs, 4,896 students in advanced education programs, and 19,362 students in allied education programs.
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.”
