Major League Baseball and Smokeless Tobacco Use

  Finally, Major League Baseball teams this season will be playing baseball with limits on the use of smokeless tobacco, or chewing tobacco, on the field and in front of fans!  Little do people know that  part of the 5 year collective bargain agreement reached in November included restrictions on smokeless tobacco for players.  This is truly an important step in the right direction as smokeless tobacco has a deadly and devastating effect on oral health.  The general public, especially, high school baseball players do not realize the hazards associated with smokeless tobacco and even worse the addiction factor.  I am personally excited to hear of this agreement and hope that it will carry the right message to kids.  Being in the profession of oral health, and having the opportunity to help patients towards good oral health, beautiful cosmetic dentistry, and helping relieve TMJ Pain is truly rewarding.  Seeing photos of oral cancer patients truly brings me down. It is for this reason that we use the high tech Identfi 3000 oral cancer screening fluorescence in our office.  If you have any questions about Houston Cosmetic Dentistry or Houston TMJ please feel free to call our office, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF  713-668-2289
