I started smoking at the age of 17, and have been addicted to smoking since then. I am 30 now. Lately, I have been facing some problems with my teeth. My gums are always bleeding, and it is causing me a lot of pain. When I consulted my doctor, he told me that it might be due to my smoking habit, he has given me the medicine for the time being, but he told me that I might face the problem of bleeding gums as long as I am smoking, and it will stop when I stop smoking. I checked on the internet to know more, and found this article, http://www.pearldentalburlington.com/blog/dental-problems/can-smoking-be-the-root-cause-for-bleeding-gums/, is this right ? Has anyone faced anything similar? Or is it just me? Is there no other cure for bleeding gums.
