Perioperative management of the tobacco user

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Tobacco use remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality and can produce myriad adverse effects on the oral and maxillofacial complex. As smoking negatively impacts both anesthetic management and healing and surgical outcomes, it is incumbent upon oral and maxillofacial surgeons to address tobacco use in the patients for whom they render care. This chapter will address nicotine addiction, systemic and oral consequences of tobacco use and environmental tobacco smoke, perioperative concerns, and the available, effective office-based tobacco interventions.
