Is There Any Type of Safe Tobacco Use?
Posted on 7/10/2019 by Dr. Todd Rogers
If you are a smoker, but know that it is bad for your health, you may think about switching to a different type of tobacco. Unfortunately, when it comes to both your oral and overall health, there is no such thing as a safe tobacco.
