why cigarettes are very closely related to dental and oral health?

Not only is smoking related to an increased chance of heart attack and lung cancer, but it is also bad for our oral health. Smoking causes bad breath, tooth discoloration, increased buildup of plaque, chance of catching gingivitis (gum disease), and oral cancer.

I quit smoking a little over a year and a half because I could not afford them anymore. It took me a great effort and I still crave for a ciggy once in a while. I will be a smoker till I die. But my lungs are wonderful and they were fine all of the 50 years I smoked. A renowned specialist in my country who is also my cousin checked me twice thoroughly. I believe some people have more problems with one thing and others have problems with another. My brother has never smoked and he has allergies, can´t stant a smoker a block away and so on. My oral health was fine until a years after I quit smoking. THEN it collapsed.
