Smoking multiplies pathogens in the oral cavity

Our oral cavity is loaded with bacteria that are purely biological and unharmful. This biological flora goes for a toss when tobacco chemicals stay in contact with them for a long term. One of the most prominent signs of infectious development and aggressive accumulation of cytokines is gingivitis and excessive loss of bone structure. Due to the elimination of healthy bacteria from the oral cavity chronic smokers encounter the issue of periodontal problem to some extent even after undergoing the routing process of scaling/cleaning.
