E-cigarettes, often referred to as vaping can be equally as dangerous as traditional cigarettes.

They work by heating up a liquid using a battery-powered device, to turn it into vapour that people inhale into their lungs.

Vapes have been marketed as a healthier option than traditional cigarettes, as well as a means to quit smoking. But it’s shaping up to look otherwise – just because the flavours sound tasty, doesn’t make the inhalation healthy at all.

How does vaping affect your oral health?

  • Leads to more bacteria in the mouth thus,  causing an increase in tooth decay, cavities and gum disease.
  • It causes mouth and throat irritation, hence affecting your gums. This can cause symptoms such as tenderness, swelling and redness.
  • Bruxism (grinding) or clenching teeth occurs when vaping and can potentially lead to tooth damage.

How do I reduce the side-affects?

  • Limit your nicotine intake or opt for low-nicotine or nicotine-free juices
  • Drink water after vaping to avoid dry mouth and bad breath
  • Improve your oral health by brushing twice a day and flossing daily to prevent plaque and cavities
  • Visit your dentist every six months for a regular check-up and clean
