A new study argues that smoking marijuana every day could have long-term side affects on your teeth.

The study found that a smoker’s gums can become infected with a disease that causes teeth to loosen and eventually fall out. The study was written at Arizona State University and published through JAMA Psychiatry. It was designed to research whether or not recreational marijuana use results in long-term negative side effects.

Dr. Madeline Meier led a team of scientists surveying people aged 18 to 32. One quarter of them claimed to have gum disease. The subjects were also tested for systemic inflammation, to analyze lung function and to monitor metabolic health.
