It’s Never Too Late To Quit Smoking

We have known for some time that smoking increases the likelihood of developing periodontal disease and losing teeth.  A new article recently evaluated the effect of quitting smoking.  The article found that periodontal disease progresses less rapidly in those who quit smoking compared to those who continue to smoke.   Quitting smoking led to a 30% reduction in bone loss!  Quitting smoking definitely has a positive effect on periodontal health.  It’s never too late to quit!
