Description

While cigarette use is declining among adults and leveling off in teens, spit tobacco consumption is on the rise. Even as the popularity of this known carcinogen reaches record levels among young people, spit tobacco use continues to receive relatively little attention as a public health issue. The dental team is in an ideal position to use the “teachable moments” that occur during a dental visit to counsel patients on the dangers of tobacco use and support them in cessation efforts.
