California Dental Insurance – Chewing Tobacco

11/21/22 9:36 AM

I chew tobacco, brush my teeth three times a day, along with flossing regularly and using a strong mouthwash.  I am not at the point where I want to stop chewing tobacco but I also do not want bad oral health.  

Answer: If you can you may wish to rethink chewing or start to slowing reducing how much you chew until you are able to quit completely.

Their are many different potential side effects of chewing tobacco, but since we are talking about your teeth here are the side effects related to just your mouth. 1)  Stained teeth  2)  Bad breath  3)  Sores on the gums and in the mouth that are stubborn to heal  4)  Some of the effects on dental health are escalated by the sugar that is added to the tobacco during processing to improve the taste.   5)  A higher risk of developing oral cancer
