According to the World Health Organization, about one-third of the world’s adult population uses tobacco of some variety and of those, 50 percent will die prematurely. Smoking causes many diseases, hurts nearly every bodily organ and generally reduces a smoker’s health. Smokers are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease, stroke and lung cancer. Beyond these systemic illnesses, tobacco use also adversely affects oral health. With this in mind, the dentists and the staff at Smiles by Arnold & Associates in Valparaiso and Chesterton, IN, would like to encourage you, our dear patient, to eliminate tobacco of any kind from your life.
