A new report shows smokers go to the dentist less often than non-smokers.
The Centers for Disease Control looked at survey responses from more than 16,000 adults. More than a third of smokers had at least 3 dental problems -- ranging from stained teeth to gum disease.
Twenty-percent of smokers also said it'd been at least 5 years since their last dentist visit, compared to 10-percent of non-smokers.
Although the surveys did not look at health insurance or income levels, half of smokers said they couldn't afford a trip to the dentist.
