According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 54,000 people will be diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer this year. Roughly one person per hour will die from oral cancer. People who smoke are at a higher risk of developing oral cancer, gum problems and complications after tooth extractions and gum and oral surgery. Smokers have a lowered resistance to infections and have impaired healing.

Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. The word periodontal literally means “around the tooth.” Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth.
