To give it a straightforward answer, yes, vaping is bad for the teeth. First off, you have to consider how e-cigarettes work. It turns the liquid into vapor by heating it. The vapor is what you will inhale. This means that you will be providing heat to your mouth which will change the bacterial presence in it. As a result, the mouth becomes dry. The warmer the temperature is in the mouth due to vaping, the more it can become more favorable to harmful bacteria. Vaping may lead to dental decay also known as cavities, inflamed gum tissues, and bone loss. Vaping may increase inflammation in the mouth which can make it more susceptible to infection.
Vaping is relatively new and needs more further studies; but when it comes to its effects on the teeth and gum tissues, vaping is similar to smoking. This is because of the heat applied to the mouth. When the mouth becomes dry, the rate of getting tooth decay increases. Vaping can also cause teeth darkening because even if it has no tar, it still contains nicotine which can cause teeth discoloration. Nicotine is also known to stain the teeth and it sticks to the enamel and makes the teeth rough, making them more susceptible to plaque and other dental elements that can easily stick and multiply on them.
More studies have to be conducted to establish the different ways for vaping to damage the teeth. This is possible because of the flavoring agents found in e-cigarettes. The ingredients of the e-liquid can be detrimental to teeth and oral health. Propylene glycol (PG) is harmful to the enamel and soft tissue. Vegetable glycerin (VG) when combined with flavorings can make cavity-causing bacteria stick to the teeth and cause rampant tooth decay. Nicotine is also found though in a smaller amount compared to tobacco cigarettes, and this increases the risk of gum diseases and teeth loss.
Many people have been asking if vaping can cause acne breakouts. Some people reported experiencing more acne breakouts after starting vaping, others report simply the opposite. One possible reason why people experience a lesser occurrence of acne is that they consider vaping as a healthier alternative to smoking. Remember that a regular tobacco cigarette has 7,000 chemicals you can inhale while e-cigarettes heat nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals that turn into an aerosol that will be inhaled by the vaper. When people switch from smoking to vaping, their exposure to tobacco and other harmful chemicals is lessened which leads to reduced acne. The same people also reported fewer cases of discoloration and scarring.
This does not mean at all that vaping can treat acne. Some people even reported an increase in acne breakouts. Some people notice the occurrence of acne for the first time. These are often found around the mouth and chin. One theory is that acne breakouts increase is brought about by vapers touching their face more often. The acne is caused by the oils and debris that they pick through their hands. More studies are required to establish this link.
Another possible cause for vaping to bring about acne breakouts is dehydration which may be wreaking havoc on sebum production. If you have dry skin, the body will compensate by producing more oil. This may clog the pores and cause breakouts. Vaping also decreases wound healing which will slow down the skin damage repair. It’s the same process that takes care of eliminating acne scars and dark spots. You can become unfortunate and end up with larger acne holes than they would have to be.
Vaping also entails the use of toxic metals. Long exposure to them may be harmful. Nickel allergy for instance may be similar to an acne breakout with all the bumps and redness on the skin. That’s why you have to see a dermatologist when you notice what looks like acne on the mouth or chin after vaping.
Vaping is only recommended or rather tolerated by others as a means to quit smoking. Vaping has side effects, and it depends on how much or how often you vape and the type of e-juice you use. The most immediate common side effects of vaping are coughing, having dry mouth and throat, difficulty in breathing, headaches, and irritation of the mouth and throat. Such side effects are often linked to vapor inhalation in vaping and also smoking.
The American Heart Association (AHA) stated that vaping e-liquids have fewer contaminants than cigarettes. Nonetheless, vaping is still considered unsafe due to several reasons. E-cigarettes have a large dose of nicotine. This is a substance that slows brain development in teens, children, and fetuses. The e-juice that creates the vapor to be inhaled also poses a risk to both adults and children if ever they swallow, inhale, or perhaps it ends up on their skin. Vaping also delivers highly dangerous chemicals which include heavy metals, diacetyl, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and cancer-causing chemicals. Vaping may also normalize smoking once again as its popularity soars.
There is limited information on the long-term effects of vaping since it is relatively a new practice. The University of Iowa stated that the idea behind vaping is that it can be a safer means to get nicotine. Evidence suggests otherwise. Vaping is seen to damage the lungs, allow for the release of free radicals into the body which may result in cancer development, as well as weaken the immune system. As studies of vaping continue to be conducted, it is possible to find more long-term effects of vaping in the future.
A general agreement now exists that e-cigarette use exposes the vaper to fewer toxicants as opposed to smoking tobacco cigarettes. This means that smokers who switch to e-cigs lessen their exposure to a wide variety of toxic substances.
There is no sufficient information about the risks of vaping, but the Center for Disease Control gave the following warning: Don’t start to vape if you are not a vaper. When you vape, don’t buy the vape or any vaping device and e-liquid from the street. Don’t try to change the vape or add anything to the device that the maker didn’t say. The young, young adults and pregnant women must not vape. The Food and Drug Administration regulates vapes sold in stores, but not those that are sold in the streets. The e-juice contains marijuana as well as other drugs. This contains other dangerous chemicals too like diacetyl and formaldehyde which are associated with lung disease and cancer. Nicotine is the most active ingredient of e-liquid, and it is known to be addictive. Some e-juices are flavored. Such flavorings can bring about DNA damage and also kill cells that line the blood vessels. Based on a study, cinnamon and menthol flavors are specifically harmful.
Researchers also discovered levels of metals in the e-cigarette vapor that may be dangerous. Some of these are nickel, lead, chromium, as well as the metal-like element called arsenic. Based on research, these metals are released by coils that are found within the device that heat the liquid. Breathing in these metals is linked to lung, liver, and brain damage, weakened immune system, and a lot of cancers.
The e-liquid runs from your lungs to the bloodstream. This enables the body to release adrenaline. This is a hormone that increases the pulse, breathing rate, and blood pressure. This increases your chances of getting a heart attack. When you vape marijuana, the high it can give you will be stronger than when you smoke it. This results in you getting anxious, and your eyes and mouth becoming drier. Nicotine may also wire the brain for other types of addiction like cocaine and alcohol.
