Description

The cigarette has been identified as the deadliest artifact in the history of human civilization. Most tobacco users know the power of addiction and want to quit. Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death and disease globally, and contributes to 6 of the 8 leading non-communicable diseases. Evidence tells a vivid and chilling story of the dire and urgent need to support cessation. This session offers a synthesis of the empirical evidence for safe and effective treatment for the condition of addiction to nicotine, or Tobacco Use Disorder (DSM-5), also referred to as Nicotine Dependence (DSM-IV-TR).  Dental Health Professionals are ideally placed to screen, detect, assess, and treat tobacco addiction, thereby saving lives and reducing the excess healthcare burden of tobacco. How can dental health professionals contribute to the “endgame” for this devastating man-made epidemic?
