Your Dentist Can Give You Lots of Information About Quitting
When you are sitting in a dental chair, your dentist is going to be able to help provide you with a lot of smoking-related information. They can tell you what damage is already happening inside your mouth, plus they can paint you a very accurate picture of what is going to be happening down the line in your mouth.
Dentists have access to a lot of information coming directly from the American Dental Association and the Center for Disease Control that they can share with you about quitting smoking as well. They can explain to you that within the first 24 hours of quitting, your body is already healing.
They have materials that can put you in touch with local groups where quitting smoking is the goal, and they can even recommend specific medications that you can ask your physician for that can help with the battle against nicotine.
Quitting smoking is no easy task, but with the right amount of motivation and dedication, it can be made easier.
