I quit smoking about three months ago but I still haven't been to see my dentist. It has been about 5 years since my last checkup and I have been putting it off. I'm worried that my teeth will be very unhealthy, and it will cost me a lot of money to fix them. I'm also embarrassed that my nicotine addiction will likely have caused issues. My teeth feel mostly okay. I have some sensitivity so I know I need to get them checked out. There is a slight tartar build up also so it's important I get them scaled and cleaned soon. I am sometimes my own worst enemy when it comes to my physical health! Does anyone else put things like this off? Maybe someone has a positive smoker + dentist story to share? Will they be able to tell just from looking at my teeth that I was a smoker?
