National Smile Month 2019

Posted on 2nd May 2019

National Smile Month 2019 will run from May 13th until June 13th and aims to raise awareness of the importance of good oral hygiene. Many smokers are unaware of the effects of smoking tobacco on their teeth and gums such as:

  • stained teeth
  • bad breath (halitosis)
  • tooth loss
  • gum disease
  • loss of taste and smell
  • reduced blood supply to the mouth
  • increased build-up of plaque and tartar on your teeth
  • delayed healing following dental extractions
  • increased risk of oral cancer
Quitting smoking is the most important step in improving your oral health. Find your local stop smoking service today.
