What You Should Know Before Switching from Cigarettes to E-Cigs
If you are a cigarette smoker who has been contemplating the switch to electronic cigarettes, also known as “vaping,” you might think you would be doing yourself—and your oral health—a favor. But you might want to think again.
According to a recent study published in the medical journal Oncotarget, researchers have found that the chemicals in e-cigarettes are equally as damaging as those found in regular cigarettes. Although e-cigarette liquids don’t contain tobacco like cigarettes, they contain nicotine and other dangerous chemicals.
Talk to your dentist in Lewes about your smoking habit before you switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes. Your oral health—and your overall health—will still be at risk.
