Vaping101: Does Vaping Make Your Teeth Yellow Like Smoking Does?
With the increasing awareness of health nowadays, many people are starting to quit smoking. If it is difficult to quit, they will replace it with e-cigarettes without those harmful substances. Some people are starting to wonder if vaping, which is different from traditional cigarettes, will also cause teeth to turn yellow. For this question, let's learn from the following.
Do e-cigarettes contain tar that makes teeth yellow like cigarettes？
The answer is: No.
Research by British American Tobacco shows that vaping has almost no teeth contamination while smokers get ‘stains’, turning teeth from a healthy-looking white to an unhealthy-looking yellow/brown colour. Although this staining is commonly referred to as nicotine staining, it is not caused by nicotine, but by tar in smoke. E-cigarettes and tobacco heating products stain teeth significantly less than traditional cigarettes, according to a study by British American Tobacco scientists.
Does that mean it won't cause other oral diseases?
The answer is still: No.
While vaping doesn't make your teeth yellow, it has other different effects on your oral health. E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is harmful to oral health.
Before using e-cigarettes to quit smoking, it is important to understand the effects of e-cigarettes. Let's take a look at some of the effects of e-cigarettes on oral health.
Halitosis is a condition that constantly produces bad breath. E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which can prolong bad breath. Nicotine reduces saliva production and increases the production of bacteria in the mouth. In turn, bacteria can cause bad breath even after you’ve brushed your teeth.
2. The effects of Vaping on your Gums
Gums play an important role in oral health by holding your teeth in position. Nicotine, which is present in vaping, has adverse effects on your gums. Nicotine reduces blood flow to the gums making the gums to lack nutrients and oxygen.
Does the Vape Quality Matter?
The answer is: Yes.
The quality of the e-cigarette you choose makes all the difference to your mouth. If the vape contains dyes, it would be best to avoid them because they will stain your teeth. Your oral health should always be a priority when selecting the vaping to use.
1.Check the quality and the reputation of the manufactures before using a vape.
2.Choose food grade vape liquid and implement the principle of healthy vaping, which is essential for long-term vaping people. When oral disease is serious, reduce or suspend the intake of nicotine until getting an oral health again.
