Why would I be so particular about quitting tobacco?

My father was heavy smoker.He smoked a cigarette 50 from 40 per day.Therefore he repeated 22 times of hospitalization and received several times of cardiac operations.Father of such a heavy smoker gave up smoking five years before he died. Therefore I was convinced that it was given up smoking in anyone. I explained the harm of the cigarette to all patients who smoked at my clinic, and a considerable patient gave up smoking.

Periodontal disease

Periodontal disease is a condition that progresses often without any subjective symptoms. Because periodontal disease does not cause pain, it is liable to progress unnoticed to the point where the bone supporting the teeth starts to dissolve and the teeth finally fall out.
Gingivitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end -- if not properly treated -- with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth. What is the difference between Gingivitis and Periodontitis?
Gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontitis (gum disease). However, it is important to know that not all gingivitis progresses to periodontitis.In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage has occurred at this stage.When gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis. In a person with periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected. The body's immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line.

Influence of tobacco

Influence of tobacco

Tobacco products, especially cigarettes, contain a number of chemicals and toxic substances that can seriously and permanently damage one's health. For example, while tobacco naturally contains the addictive drug nicotine, it also emits tar and carbon monoxide as byproducts. Smokers have more calculus (hardened dental plaque) than nonsmokers, and heavy smokers have more calculus than light smokers. The Nicotine in tobacco causes something called vasoconstriction (narrowing the blood vessels). Blood circulation has been shown to decrease by as much as 70% in your mouth during the smoking of a cigarette. Tobacco smoking, furthermore, also affects your body's immune responses (defense system).
If you are a smoker, your dental care needs are considerably more demanding than those of a non-smoker. In fact, cigarette smoking is a leading cause of tooth loss. Smoking also increases your risk for periodontal disease (gum disease), loss of bone structure, inflammation of the salivary gland, leukoplakia (precancerous condition) and development of lung, throat or oral cancer.
In addition to the critical risks mentioned above, other factors for smokers to consider include:-  A consistent build up of plaque and tartar, Stained teeth, Bad breath,The loss of taste and smell.
Furthermore, smoking is associated with a slower healing process following dental work, and a lower rate of success for procedures such as dental implants. In fact, smokers may not be implant candidates at all.
