The Dangers of Smokeless Tobacco

Many people are aware of the dangers of cigarette smoking. This video points out that smokeless tobacco also poses a number of health risks. Watch the video to find out more about how the use of smokeless tobacco can endanger your health and how a family dentistry clinic can help.

The video shows how tobacco can cause irritation of the gums. The gums may shrink back, exposing the roots of the teeth. This can result in gum disease, caries and tooth decay, and may also increase the sensitivity of the teeth. The video warns that snuff and chewing tobacco users have an increased risk of contracting oral cancer. The presenter lists some early symptoms of oral cancer, which your family dentistry clinic can help you learn more about. A professional dental practice offering family dentistry in Alpharetta can offer oral cancer screenings.
