Dental professionals can play an important role in helping patients quit tobacco use and non-cigarette tobacco products. Dentists are trained to work with patients to cease smoking. Smoking causes damage to the teeth and gums. Let your dentist know of your worries and past history of tobacco/e-cigarette use as well as any attempts to quit. Together you can come up with a plan to discontinue use. This may involve medications, counseling, social support, and local services.
