If you want to get rid of smoking during 2017 and not pick it back up again, call your dentist first and see what their suggestions are to give you the greatest chances of success.
Quitting Smoking Made Easier with Your Dentist’s HelpFirst of all, you want to go in and get a really good cleaning of your teeth done. When your mouth is clean, you are more apt to take care of it and not put anything in it that is going to ruin that feeling.
This can be a good way to start off the quitting process. Second, talk with your dentist about snacks that you can safely eat that can replace having something in your mouth. Most dentists will tell you to fill your produce drawer in your fridge with things like celery and carrots.
These are great snacks for your teeth, plus they can give you the feeling of having something in your mouth that is a similar shape. Finally, your dentist can help you know where to turn when cravings hit. They are a wealth of resources that can help you in your journey to quit, so make sure to give them a call.
