Abstract
T he oral cavity can be a window to the health of the body. Dentists, as the physicians of the oral cavity, encounter many conditions that are directly or indirectly related to tobacco, alcohol, and other addictions. Dentists may be first to recognize changes in oral health that reflect changes in the overall health of the patient, such as vitamin deficiencies in the alcoholic, or HIV infection in the needle user or sex addict. Some oral manifestations take many years to develop, such as tobacco use and oral cancer. Tobacco abuse is also a leading factor in periodontitis (gum disease). Other addiction-related changes can be dramatic, like ischemic lesions in the cocaine addict, or rapid deterioration in oral health with methamphetamine use. Some addiction-related changes are not well recognized in North America, such as betel quid use and oral submucous fibrosis. This overview of the oral impact of addictions will use cases with clinical photographs to illustrate why former US Surgeon General C. Everett Koop declared, You're not healthy without good oral health.
