Consequences of Tobacco Usagejayadentalclinic / 17/11/2018
The usage of tobacco is fast becoming a fashion fad among the current generation of youngsters. Even though there is a wide spread awareness on the adverse effects of tobacco usage. The habit continues to be rampant as the gravity of the problem is not fully understood. Some of the common ill effects are oral cancer, white patches referred to as leukoplakia and red patches like erythroplakia and burning sensation with difficulty in mouth opening referred to as oral submucous fibrosis. The prognosis of these diseases remains poor. Hence it is better to prevent these diseases rather than treat them. All these diseases are totally preventable if one refrains from the habit of tobacco usage.
