Yes, smokeless tobacco can be harmful because chewers usually put the tobacco in between the cheek and the gum. In many instances, when doing oral exams, we see the changes in the tissue to the exposure to the chewing tobacco, which can ultimately lead to oral cancer, ulcerations, and oral infections.
