Is vaping bad for your teeth?
Since vaping is still relatively new to the market we don’t fully know the long-term effects it has on your body, but what we can do is compare the differences between vaping and tobacco products since we have a wealth of information available on the latter. By doing this we’ll still be able to paint a pretty good picture of what effects vaping may have on your oral health.
Will vaping stain your teeth yellow? Cigarettes are known to stain your teeth over time due mostly to the tar and nicotine they contain. E-liquid is only heated, not burnt, so you won’t find any of that sticky brown tar. This makes your chances of having stained teeth much lower.
What about bad breath? E-liquids still generally contain nicotine which may cause your mouth to become a little dry which can lead to halitosis (bad breath). As long as you stay hydrated you shouldn’t find yourself running into any bad breath or plaque buildup (both common side effects of smoking). Many e-juices leave a pleasant lingering taste. Stop in and we’ll tell you which ones we suggest for date night.
Does vaping cause mouth cancer? Truthfully, there’s just not enough data to know. Vaping just hasn’t been around long enough to see “long term” affects. However, what we do know is the multitude of chemicals found with tobacco smoking damages your body all the way down to your DNA. It’s this damage that harms your body’s natural ability to protect you from illnesses including cancer. The great thing about e-liquid is that hundreds of these chemicals aren’t present. Most researchers agree that e-cigarettes are far safer, many say around 95% safer, than smoking. Decide for yourself and stay tuned for more information coming your way.
