New Forms of Smokeless Tobacco

Categories: April 2011, Oral Cancer

We are all aware of the traditional forms of tobacco. But emerging tobacco products in the forms of dissolvable orbs, sticks and strips provide nicotine without the spit or second hand smoke. The reduction of second hand smoke is great but there is a lack of research which makes the dental community very concerned. These dissolvable forms of nicotine still contain carcinogens and should only be used as cessation products. They can be highly addictive and easily to hide and use.
