    I don’t think there is a specific treatment other than not chewing tobacco. It causes a lot of irritation to the oral mucosa, resulting in dense leukoplakia and can develop into squamous cell carcinoma. Rinsing with an equal parts mixture of water and glycerine may help. Just be sure to examine these patients frequently for areas suspicious for cancer.
