Here's an easy way to show your patients the effects of tobacco use on oral tissues. This book describes the range of problems associated with both smoking and chewing tobacco, from bad breath, facial wrinkling and unsightly stains to dental abrasion, periodontal disease, hairy tongue, and oral cancer. Explanations and detailed illustrations of the negative effects of tobacco use on periodontal and implant therapy are especially valuable. An appendix explains the benefits of cessation and offers solid suggestions.
