Smokeless Tobacco and Your Oral Health

Using smokeless tobacco can significantly increase your risk for oral health issues like periodontal disease and oral cancer. If you use smokeless tobacco, you are exposing yourself to harmful chemicals that make it much more difficult to maintain a healthy mouth.

The tobacco irritates gums, which could lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and increased sensitivity. There are at least 28 cancer-causing agents in smokeless tobacco. If you use smokeless tobacco, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist to make sure everything looks good in your mouth. Learn more in this video.
