Smokeless Is Not Harmless For North Palm Beach Tobacco Chewers

Smokeless Is Not Harmless For Juno Beach Tobacco ChewersHello North Palm Beach cosmetic dental friends. Today’s topic is ‘The Dangers Of Smokeless Tobacco’.

Cigarette sales at most North Palm Beach stores have decreased in the past decade, but some North Palm Beach tobacco consumers have switched to smokeless products.

There is a common misconception in the North Palm Beach area (especially among teens) that smokeless tobacco is harmless. This is absolutely not true. Regardless of the specific type: spit tobacco, snuff, chew, or pinch, this form of tobacco is as deadly as conventional cigarettes.

At Weinberg Dentistry, we encounter serious consequences of smokeless tobacco use because many occur in the mouth. Oral cancer, mouth lesions, gum disease and tooth decay are the most common dental health problems caused by smokeless tobacco in North Palm Beach.

Keeping a pinch between your cheek and gum all day is worse than keeping an all-day sucker. The tobacco contains almost as much sugar as the candy but delivers harmful chemicals as an added bonus. The dangers are two-fold: the tobacco erodes the teeth and also causes the gums to pull away from teeth often resulting in tooth pain or worse.

Precancerous Mouth Lesion Screening in North Palm Beach: Mouth Lesions are painful sores that could eventually become cancer. If smokeless tobacco use is stopped, the lesions often disappear within a year for North Palm Beach dental patients.

Oral Cancer in Juno Beach: Smokeless tobacco use in North Palm Beach increases the risk for several types of life-threatening cancers including those of the mouth, gums, lips, tongue, and throat.

Oral cancers can be as deadly as lung cancer and usually require surgery. If the North Palm Beach patient is fortunate and the cancer is successfully removed with surgery, the collateral damage to the face, neck, or jaw is not pretty.

These are the main dental risks of smokeless tobacco. I should also mention two other biggies: addiction and heart disease, though those are topics for another day.

At Weinberg Dentistry in North Palm Beach, we perform oral health screenings during dental examinations. To schedule an appointment, call (561) 420-0770.

If want to quit using smokeless tobacco products, we recommend that you consult Dr. Weinberg at Weinberg Dentistry, your North Palm Beach primary care doctor, or your local pharmacist.
