Periodontal Cancer Pictures

Smokeless tobacco and smoke from cigarettes, pipes and cigars creates an unhealthy environment in a person's mouth. Tobacco can cause oral cancer, gum disease, increased tooth decay and periodontal bone loss. It may also lead to an increased risk of tumors of the upper digestive tract. Please be aware that many of the pictures in this section are graphic in nature. Not for the faint of heart!
