Great American Smokeout badgeI just read a notice in my email list from the American Dental Association about the dangers of tobacco products for dental health (and overall health as well). I thought I’d pass along some of their information and a few great resources for basic information and to help those who need to quit.

 The dental effects of smoking include increased rates of tooth erosion, gum recession, dental decay, bad breath, staining of tooth structure and fillings, and periodontitis (gum disease). With long term use, these effects are often dramatic. Cancer risk involving the tongue, palate, floor of the mouth, and throat increases dramatically with tobacco use, as do other cancers.

With these concerns in mind, the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout is being held this year on November 17. If you or a loved one uses tobacco in any form, I urge you to look at the resources listed below to find a cessation program to begin. You and your family will be glad you did!

happy patients

I started coming to Dr. Miller in the late 1980s after not going to a dental office for 4 years. It was difficult going back after such a long time. The staff all were so professional and trusting that they put me at ease.

Over the years I have had a number of elective procedures done. All have worked out so well. I am thankful for Dr. Miller's honest evaluation of what needs to be done now and what we can wait to do.

A job change took me away from the Syracuse area, but I thought so highly of the practice that I am still a patient to this day.

Quality dental work you can trust is worth it!
