Vaping and Overall HealthUsing e-cigarettes, also known as vaping, has been increasing in popularity in the United States over the past few years. While many manufacturers claim that these devices are safer than traditional cigarettes, research is starting to contradict that claim. Recent studies show a possible correlation between vaping and an increased risk of pneumonia, rapid heart rate, congestive heart failure, and stroke. While more research on the overall health effects of vaping needs to be done, many studies support that the ‘safer’ way to smoke simply isn’t safe.
Vaping and Oral HealthSimilarly to studies on vaping and overall health, we need more research on the effects of vaping and oral health. However, the past few years of research have found possible links between vaping and risks to oral health, including:
- Dry Mouth
- Inflamed Gums
- Cell Damage
