World No Tobacco Day | Fairfield Dental Clinic
World No Tobacco Day is noticed world wide every year on the 31st of May. It's goal is to help people understand the negative effects that tobacco has on an individual's health. Currently, tobacco is responsible for 6 million deaths each year world wide, and 19,000 just in Australia, including second hand smokers. Here are some of the effects that tobacco has on an individual's oral health:
- Periodontal disease, Oral cancer, Poor healing after extractions (dry sockets), Poor healing after mouth and gum surgery, Stained teeth.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
