Save Your Smile- Stop Smoking! Fort Mill, SC

There are a whole host of reasons why you should stop smoking: reduce your risk for cancer, live longer, improve how your breath smells. Yet, in case you need another incentive to stop smoking, it can save your smile!

The moment you stop smoking, your oral health will immediately improve. Tobacco is a product that irritates the gum tissues within the mouth. The moment you either spit it out or choose not to put it in your mouth, your gums will begin healing themselves. Many people overlook the importance of healthy gums, yet the gums play a vital role in your oral health and for your smile. The gum tissues protect the roots of the teeth and help to stabilize the teeth in the jaw bone. Every time you smoke or chew tobacco, you are weakening the gum tissues and causing your entire mouth to become extremely susceptible to decay and disease. The moment you stop smoking and using tobacco is the moment your mouth becomes healthier. The human body is an incredible machine that wants to protect itself and promote its own health. Once you make the decision to stop smoking, your body will begin going to work to heal the damage that has been done.

Brushing and flossing do little to combat the damaging effects of tobacco use. If you want to protect your smile so that it lasts you your entire life, the choice to stop smoking is the first decision you need to make. Serious concerns are directly caused by tobacco use:

  • Stained teeth
  • Foul breath
  • Plaque buildup
  • Tartar buildup
  • Tooth decay
  • Leukoplakia
  • Oral cancer
  • Jaw bone deterioration
  • Tooth loss

If you smoke or use any type of tobacco, now is the time to stop. Your dentist is often your best source for quitting smoking, and at Gold Hill Dentistry we want to help you in any way we can. If you are ready to make your oral health a priority, please contact us to schedule an appointment. We are here to help you break the habit and restore your health.

Gold Hill Dentistry

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
