Relationship between spending on electronic cigarettes, day use, and disease symptoms among current adult cigarette smokers in the U.
Only 2 participants indicated a worsening of their general health. This observation was also supported by Adriaens and others, 34 who studied 30 participants who were smokers for at least 3 years, smoked at least 10 cigarettes a day, had no intention of quitting smoking in the following 3 months and were willing to try several less harmful alternatives.
Bronchial epithelial cells exposed to vaped flavoured liquids showed cell toxicity that was dependent on the level of diacetyl in the liquid. The authors concluded that flavouring enhanced the standard nicotine reward, leading to potential abuse in young adult smokers. They are considered safe, because they do not produce tar or carbon monoxide as CCS does. As a result, aerosols from these liquids are likely to adhere to exposed surfaces, such as the soft and hard tissues in the oral cavity, as well as dental implants.
This interaction may, in turn, facilitate bacterial adhesion leading to oral infections, such as caries Table 1. In addition, dental caries can be promoted by added flavours supplemented with sugars. Indeed, The study demonstrated that aerosols with various nicotine contents and flavours altered enamel colour and reduced luminosity; flavoured liquids caused greater colour change. Smoking is a global public health issue.
Tobacco smoking is responsible for local and general health problems, which can be prevented by cessation. Although complete smoking cessation is the best outcome, the powerful addictive properties of nicotine represent an enormous obstacle, even for those with a strong desire to quit smoking. However, additional long-term clinical and user-based studies are needed to validate these observations.
Oral health professionals may need to document observed modifications in the oral cavity of their patients, such as saliva thickening, unusual oral ulcers and the frequency of caries. The data that support the findings of this study are held by Public Health Ontario and were used under license for the current study. Restrictions apply to the availability of these data; however, they are available from the authors on reasonable request and with permission of Public Health Ontario.

While the oral health effects of vaping are not fully studied, there is some evidence that vaping increases the likelihood that tobacco users will not be able to quit.
There have also been anecdotal reports of orofacial damage when these devices have suddenly overheated, sometimes to the point of exploding. Aside from the intended use of approved nicotine cessation products, the ADA discourages the use of all nicotine products made or derived from tobacco.
