You started chewing tobacco around the time you were in high school. It quickly became a part of your personality. At some point, you developed a bad sore throat and thought, “Oh my God, please don’t let this be cancer.” You decided to quit for the first time. After your throat got better, one stressor lead to another and you bought another tin. Sounds too familiar, right? Ultimately, you resigned to your addiction and justified it with, “It’s my only bad habit.” Your Hutchinson dentist understands how difficult it can be to quit smokeless tobacco, we run into patients that use it all the time! However, that does not make it any better for either your general or oral health. If you think that going smokeless is better for you, think again.
