Why It Matters That Tobacco Harm Reduction Brightens Smiles

A study by the University of Catania found that switching from cigarettes to harm reduction options results in whiter teeth, impacting oral health and aesthetics positively. This research offers compelling evidence supporting the use of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products over smoking for overall dental well-being. The study suggests that emphasizing the aesthetic benefits of quitting smoking, such as a brighter smile, could motivate individuals, particularly the youth, to switch to less harmful alternatives. Dentists play a crucial role in promoting smoking cessation and harm reduction, highlighting the potential for improved oral health and aesthetics through tobacco alternatives.
