When it comes to bad habits, few are worse than smoking and using tobacco products. The negative effects of tobacco have been well documented for years, yet many people still continue to use products containing this dangerous drug. Smokers and tobacco users are more vulnerable to developing a wide range of diseases than those who do not smoke or use tobacco. Many people tend to only associate lunch cancer with smoking, but the truth is that there are many other concerns that go along with this bad habit.

There are specific personal issues and oral health concerns directly related to the use of tobacco products. Personal issues include foul breath and dingy, stained teeth. Like it or not, job promotions can be won or lost on how well you take care of yourself. Professionals in many different occupations will admit that choosing qualified candidates often comes down to how well a person presents him/herself. Someone who appears to take care of his/her teeth, weight, and health are often considered a better choice and less risk than those who do not. If your teeth are stained and your breath is off-putting, it is more likely that you will get passed on a promotion – as well as passed on a date.

As far as your health goes, oral health concerns that can have detrimental consequences include periodontal disease and oral cancer. Both of these conditions can cause the complete destruction of your mouth, as well as put your entire health at risk.

Periodontal disease is the severe infection of the gums that surround and support the teeth. This disease is irreversible, and will cause the teeth to fall out unless extensive (and expensive) intervention is given. Periodontal disease is linked to smoking and tobacco use because tobacco inhibits the gums’ immunity to fight off infection.

Oral cancer is also caused by the compromised immunity inside the mouth. Oral cancer in incredibly dangerous because cancer cells do not isolate themselves. Cancer can easily travel throughout the body, easily carrying cancer cells from the mouth to other major organs of the entire body.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
