So which patients could you consider referring? If a patient exhibits features of nicotine dependence,15 they could benefit from a referral to their GP. These behaviours include: Smoking soon after waking15 Smoking when ill15 Having difficulty refraining from smoking15 Reporting the first cigarette of the day to be the most difficult to give up15 Smoking more in the morning than the afternoon15 Australians are well aware of the general health risks associated with cigarette smoking, but may not be as aware of the dental impact. Therefore, dentists are in a unique position to counsel their patients on the substantial oral and general health benefits of quitting smoking, as well as referring them on to smoking cessation services.2 With the emerging information on patient acceptance of smoking cessation advice16 and the increasing evidence that tobacco use causes a number of oral health issues,2 dentists have a significant role in supporting patients to quit.2 For more information on CHAMPIX® , please contact Pfizer Medical Information on 1800 675 229. 6 treatment at 1mg twice daily.
