Both Smoking And Vaping Put Your Smile At Risk

oral health risks of e-cigarettes Dallas

Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in North Dallas would like to share the following with our patients: a recent study on the effects of e-cigarettes on oral health has more dismal news for those who think vaping is safer than smoking traditional cigarettes.

In a study published in the journal Oncotarget, analysts concluded that e-cigarettes may cause chronic inflammation and irreversible cellular damage. These conditions, in turn, can lead to gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth loss.

As defined by the FDA, “E-cigarettes are devices that allow users to inhale an aerosol containing nicotine or other substances.”

Before e-cigarettes emerged on the scene in 2005, the number of people who smoked traditional cigarettes had remained fairly steady. The rise in popularity of e-cigarettes, however, has triggered an alarming health risk, especially for the nation’s youth.

The U.S. Surgeon General found that between 2011 and 2015, the use of e-cigarettes among high school students rose by and astonishing 900 percent. Today, more teens use e-cigarettes than conventional cigarettes.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in North Dallas, we treat patients suffering from smoking-related oral health problems with expertise and compassion. We also work to provide accurate information about public health issues. We add our voice to the healthcare professionals who are working to inform the public about the risks of e-cigarettes and clear up the misconception that they are somehow less risky than traditional cigarettes.
