Smoking is widely recognized as a bad habit due to the adverse effects it has on the body. Many people know the consequences such as lung diseases and cancer of the blood, liver, kidney, and other areas of the body. However, people still smoke despite these warnings.
Smoking can also create a variety of oral health issues, including stained teeth, oral cancer, and gum disease. For the smokers out there, quitting should be at the top of your new year’s resolutions list. When you stop smoking, you are committing to your overall well-being.
