What Smoking Can Do to Your Smile

Posted on February 21st, 2013 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Smoking is not only hazardous to your general health, but also damaging to your teeth and gums. Smokers are far more likely to suffer from periodontal disease and tooth loss than non-smokers.
In this video, you’ll see how periodontal disease puts your teeth at risk. You’ll learn that smoking contributes to periodontal disease by reducing saliva production. Smoking also damages the body’s natural immune response, making it easier for periodontal infections to take hold. Even if you receive periodontal treatment, continuing to smoke can inhibit your gums’ ability to heal and fight off future infection.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
