If you tell your dentist you’re giving up smoking they will be pleased for the future health of your mouth, teeth, and gums, but they won’t be so happy when you tell them you are taking up vaping as your quit method. This is because vaping can affect your oral health in the same way as cigarettes.

– E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which causes inflammation in gum tissue and increases your risk of gum disease.

– Nicotine inhibits saliva production, causing dry mouth which leads to gum infections.

– The nicotine and its harmful chemicals still put you at risk of mouth cancer

If you choose to use e-cigarettes, staying hydrated by sipping water throughout the day is important to help your smile stay healthy!”
