Health Risk With Tobacco Products

Posted .

Using tobacco products can cause significant health problems, including coughing, shortness of breath, production of phlegm, respiratory illnesses, reduced physical fitness, poor lung function, and an increase in the risk of cancer. Cigarettes not only stain your teeth but your fingers as well. Tobacco products can make your breath, clothes, hair, car, and home smell like smoke.

Quitting is the only way to decrease the risk of these health and oral tobacco-related concerns. The nicotine in tobacco products is an addictive substance that makes quitting so difficult. We recommend incorporating an exercise routine, chewing gum and getting involved with a support group or network for successfully quitting. We would be happy to discuss options available to assist you to stop using tobacco.
