Smoking and the effects on your dental implants

Smoking is one of the highest causes of implant failure. This is due to the effects of nicotine and the smoke itself.

Nicotine – constriction of blood vessels, which slows healing

Chemicals – greater susceptibility to infections

A slower healing process

The longer it takes for the surrounding bone to heal around the implant, the higher the chances of infection or early implant loss.

Nicotine replacements also cause a slower healing process, but with a lower chance of infection from the tobacco chemicals.

What are my options?

  • Quit smoking – the best option everytime
  • Take a break – (Stop for 2 weeks before and 2-3 months after)
  • Nicotine Replacement – (Vaping, patches, chewing gum)
  • Cut down – The less the better.

We always recommend quitting smoking!
