    • Research suggests that tobacco smoking depresses the immune system making it harder for your body to fight off communicable diseases such as colds. In addition, smokers don’t heal as well as nonsmokers and they do not experience as great of an improvement in their gums after periodontal disease therapy. The negative effects of smoking can be reversed by no longer smoking or using tobacco.
