Vaping could lead to oral health issues such as gum disease, requiring treatment from your dentist. The ingredients making up the liquid within e-cigarettes may create the conditions to increase the risk of dental health problems.
E-cigarettes use propylene glycol, a viscous liquid that when used orally can produce acids toxic to teeth enamel.
The combination of vegetable glycerin and flavoring increases the risk of cavity-causing bacteria sticking to the teeth.
The percentage of nicotine in e-cigarettes is much reduced, but nicotine still represents an increased risk of gum tissue.
“When compared to traditional tobacco use, an argument that e-cigarette use may be as dangerous to oral health—if not more dangerous—can be made.”
