Is smokeless tobacco a better alternative to smoking?


Smokeless tobacco, aka chewing tobacco, spitting tobacco, oral tobacco, dip, and other names, but the 2 basic types are chewing tobacco, and snuff. Some side effects are:

• Scratching and wearing down of teeth

• Bad breath

• Sloughing of gum tissue, gum disease leading to tooth loss

• Stained and discolored teeth

Smokeless tobacco is often marketed as a healthier alternative to smoking, or as a way to help you quit smoking, but it's not a healthy alternative! There are still oral dangers to smokeless tobacco. Quitting is the only way to lower your risk for tobacco and tobacco-related products.
