Pilot survey of oral mucosa in areca (betel) nut chewers on Hainan Island of the People's Republic of China



Pilot survey of oral mucosa in areca (betel) nut chewers on Hainan Island of the People's Republic of China



Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology 12(3): 195-196



100 people on Hainan Island were studied for their smoking and chewing habits and the condition of their oral mucosa. Ninety-five percent of the study population chewed areca (betel) nut. In men this habit was supplemented with either smoking cigarettes or water pipe. In two men a small commissural leukoplakia was found. In three women clinical and histologic changes pointed towards oral submucous fibrosis.
