A nicer smile, fresher breath and a healthier mouth
A portion of snuff under the lip is a toxic, foreign object in your mouth that naturally affects your oral health. Those who use snuff for a long time may notice:
- Their gums recede
- Exposed tooth necks
This makes it easier for bacteria to collect in the space between the teeth and the gums, which in turn, increases the risk of:
- Gum inflammation
- Tooth loss
Also keep in mind that tobacco products discolour the teeth. A heavy snuff user’s teeth are often yellow or greyish in colour.
If you quit using snuff, then you also have one more advantage besides those associated with health: You will get back a whiter and more natural smile. It is more aesthetically pleasing but it can also give you back your self-confidence. Many who have discoloured teeth feel uncertain about smiling and don’t want to show their teeth to others. Being able to get back a smile can do wonders for a person’s self-confidence.
If you use snuff your breath is often unpleasant. This is because the snuff irritates the mucous membranes on the inside of the lip. The mucous membranes become hardened and ridges, which in turn allows bacteria to more easily collect there. The bacteria causes your breath to become significantly worse, which may be problematic to your surroundings. If you stop using snuff your mucous membranes will recover after a while, you will have a better bacteria balance in your mouth and your breath will become fresh again.
