Implants and smokers

My dentist told me I need a dental post buildup and a crown. I smoke. Do I have to tell my dentist before I get the work done and will it make it heal more slowly?

Answers

  • Always disclose what you do that can affect your health to your dentist. Any dental work done can take longer to heal if you smoke. Puffing on a cigarette make a sucking sensation and puts pressure through your mouth which will delay healing.
