Hi, I'm Dr. Larry Klein and I'm here in St. Petersburg, Florida. We're going to be talking a little bit today about how smoking affects your mouth. A lot of these are pretty common sense answers; but I think the most basic one is, when you smoke, stain your teeth and it doesn't make your smile as attractive as it could be. Also you can realize that when you're smoking, probably affects your breath too. A lot of people with smoking, actually end up taking mints or different candies to cover up that smell which can actually deteriorate the teeth also. Gosh, another thing that smoking can do to your mouth is it dries it out. A lot of times people with, with, that smoke a lot have a really, really dry mouth. And then finally, smoking can really, really hurt the tissue and actually, in some cases called different types of mouth cancer. So smoking is not only bad for the rest of your body, but, it's also bad for your mouth. So although it may look cool, it's not the best thing to do. If you have any questions about smoking or how it relates to your mouth, feel free to give me a call; I can help you out. I'm Larry Klein. I'm here in St. Petersburg and a smile is contagious.
