Smoking, Your Teeth & Oral Health

Individuals that smoke are at a risk of suffering a variety of medical issues. These issues can be very serious and even life threatening. Smoking can cause a lot of damage to your oral health including your mouth, gums and teeth.

Smoking and other tobacco products can lead to gum disease, stained teeth, tooth loss and in more sever cases it can lead to oral cancer.

The first step in reducing the risk of serious oral health problems for smokers is to stop smoking. Regular dental care and good oral hygiene can significantly reduce serious risks to your dental health.

Canada Canadian Dental Insurance Plan (CDCP)

We are accepting the Government of Canada Canadian Dental Insurance Plan (CDCP). The CDCP is a new Canadian Dental Care Plan where individuals that do not have access to an employer provided or private dental insurance plan can apply for. As an important part of dental care and overall health, the Government of Canada recognizes the expenses that can be associated with dental treatment and is committed to helping Canadians receive the dental treatments that are required while also making it more affordable.

The CDCP is offered to help low income families who do not have dental insurance by covering some costs associated with dental services for families with net income that is under $90,000.
