  • Abstract

    The epidemic of tobacco use is one of the greatest threats to global health. Tobacco use in smoked and smokeless forms has a potentially significant and negative impact on oral health. Effect of local and systemic outcome of tobacco use on oral health depends on method, frequency, and duration of use and is dose dependent. Tobacco-induced oral diseases contribute significantly to the global oral disease burden. Health professionals should be aware of oral problems associated with tobacco use and should also play an active role in prevention and control of tobacco-induced lesions due to their direct contact with patients who are at increased risk. Counseling on smoking cessation and smoking prevention programs should be an integral component of medical and dental teaching and practice. The present article provides a compilation about tobacco and its history, composition, metabolism, effects on general and oral health, and tobacco cessation.
