Electronic Cigarettes (aka Vaping) Linked to Gum Damage

Whether or not electronic cigarettes are less harmful than traditional cigarettes is still a topic of hot debate. But it seems that the nicotine flavouring and other chemicals in e-cigs may be just as damaging to gums. This comes from University of Rochester research which compared the effects of e-cig vapours on non-smokers’ gums. The research concludes that the chemicals and flavouring agents in e-cigs:

  • Damage cells in the mouth
  • Increase risk of oral diseases
  • Increase risk of inflammations

As “e-cigarettes contain nicotine” (a known contributor to gum disease) any good dentist will not recommend their use in order to promote healthy teeth and gums.
