How Tobacco Use Affects Your Oral Health

There are many things that you can do in order to maintain positive oral health throughout your life time. One of these things is limiting or eliminating your use of tobacco. Watch this video to find out how tobacco use affects your oral health.

Tobacco use can contribute to a range of oral complications including leukoplakia, gingivitis, and oral cancer. Leukoplakia manifests itself as thick white patches that can be found on your tongue, gums, or cheeks. Gingivitis, an early form of gum disease, can lead to swollen and bloody gums. If you experience numbness in your mouth or find it difficult to chew or speak, you may be experiencing signs of oral cancer.
