Most people who use tobacco – including cigarettes, e-cigarette (vaping) devices or chewing tobacco – started as teenagers. That’s why it is important to protect children early in life from exposure to tobacco products. The Campaign for Dental Health and the Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence of the American Academy of Pediatrics are pleased to offer this new resource for families on How to Avoid Harmful Tobacco Products. Tobacco users are at higher risk of oral cancers, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. Children exposed to tobacco smoke have higher rates of dental caries. Access and share this new resource today!
