Smokeless Tobacco & Oral Cancer New

  1. 1. Presented by : dr shabeel pn
  2. 2. <ul><li>INTRODUCTION </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tobacco is responsible for a significant amount of morbidity & mortality among middle aged adults. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>India has one of the highest rates of oral cancer in the world. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tobacco-related cancers - 1/2 of all cancers - men & 1/4 th among women. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oral cancer - 1/3 rd total cancer ; 90% - tobacco chewers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Men are affected 2-3 times than women due to higher use of alcohol & tobacco and higher exposure to sunlight . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tongue & intra-oral cancer - equal in both as chewing tobacco among women is common. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Effects of tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption , and poor diet together explain over 90% of head & neck cancers. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>What Is Smokeless Tobacco? </li></ul><ul><li>Smokeless tobacco / spit tobacco / chewing tobacco. </li></ul><ul><li>Mainly two forms: snuff and chewing tobacco . </li></ul><ul><li>Snuff - users &quot;pinch&quot; or &quot;dip&quot; between their lower lip and gum. </li></ul><ul><li>Chewing tobacco - users put between their cheek and gum. </li></ul><ul><li>The tobacco juice is sucked and chewed - nicotine -absorbed into the bloodstream through the oral tissues. </li></ul><ul><li>No need to swallow. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Consumption </li></ul><ul><li>Chewed : gutkha, pan, mawa, mainpuri tobacco, khaini, zarda </li></ul><ul><li>Applied on gums and teeth : mishri, gudhaku, bajjar, tooth paste </li></ul><ul><li>Inhaled : snuff </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>TYPES </li></ul><ul><li>Gutkha </li></ul><ul><li>Khaini </li></ul><ul><li>Mainpuri tobacco </li></ul><ul><li>Mawa </li></ul><ul><li>Mishri </li></ul><ul><li>Paan </li></ul><ul><li>Snuff </li></ul><ul><li>Zarda </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>gutkhA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Leads to Oral sub-mucous fibrosis (SMF). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Main component - arecanut along with tobacco . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>KHAINI </li></ul><ul><li>Paste of tobacco + slaked lime & is used with arecanut. </li></ul><ul><li>Mixed with the thumb to make the mixture alkaline-premolar region of mandibular groove. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>MAINPURI TOBACCO </li></ul><ul><li>Tobacco+ slaked lime + finely cut arecanut + camphor + cloves. </li></ul><ul><li>Mainly-Uttar Pradesh. </li></ul><ul><li>High incidence of oral cancer & leukoplakia. </li></ul><ul><li>MAWA </li></ul><ul><li>Gujarathi preparation made from shavings of arecanut, tobacco and slaked lime. </li></ul><ul><li>Sold by tobacco vendors in cellophane papers tied like a small ball. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Mixed & chewed excessively and kept in mandibular groove- causes oral cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>MISHRI </li></ul><ul><li>Prepared by roasting tobacco on a hot metal plate-black-powdered-used with catechu. </li></ul><ul><li>Used to clean teeth. </li></ul><ul><li>Common in women –leads to low birth wt. babies . </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>PAN (BETEL QUID) WITH TOBACCO </li></ul><ul><li>Most common-ancient habit. </li></ul><ul><li>Betel leaf + arecanut + slaked lime + catechu. </li></ul><ul><li>Arecanut-vital component-drastically affects oral health. </li></ul><ul><li>Contains nitrosamines-carcinogenic. </li></ul><ul><li>Pan masala - mainly contains tobacco - causes oral cancer. </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>SNUFF </li></ul><ul><li>Finely powdered air-cured & fire-cured tobacco leaves. </li></ul><ul><li>Used orally/nasally. </li></ul><ul><li>Carried in a metal container-a twig is dipped into it-placed in oral vestibule. </li></ul><ul><li>Causes oral squamous cell carcinoma. </li></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>ZARDA </li></ul><ul><li>Tobacco leaves + lime+spices – boiled in water. </li></ul><ul><li>Residual tobacco –dried & coloured. </li></ul>

  13. 14. <ul><li>EFFECTS OF TOBACCO </li></ul><ul><li>Oral cancer </li></ul><ul><li>Cracking & bleeding lips & gums. </li></ul><ul><li>Receding gums –tooth falls out. </li></ul><ul><li>Increased heart rate, high B.P, irregular heartbeats - greater risk of heart attacks . </li></ul><ul><li>When pregnant women smoke, carbon monoxide and nicotine passes into their lungs and bloodstream, reducing the oxygen supply to their unborn baby leading to: - asthma attacks, chest infections and colds in later life - premature birth - underweight birth. </li></ul>
  14. 17. <ul><li>Oral cancer refers to cancer of the mouth , lips, tongue, floor & roof of the mouth, cheek & the gums. </li></ul><ul><li>Cancer from chewing tobacco does not remain in the mouth itself & it spreads to the stomach,esophagus & bladder. </li></ul>
  15. 18. <ul><li>ETIOLOGY & RISK FACTORS </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Genetic factors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dental factors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Occupational risks </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tobacco use </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Alcohol </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mouthwash </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Viral & fungal infections </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Diet & nutrition </li></ul></ul></ul>
