Use of electronic cigarettes (EC) has been increasing rapidly during the past several years, but little information is available regarding the association between EC use and oral health. A recent study was conducted to assess the relationship between EC use and self-reported oral symptoms among adolescents.  Take a look at the findings:

  • Increased gingival pain, bleeding, or both 
  • Increased tongue pain, inside cheek pain, or both
  • Increased a cracked or broken tooth

The authors have concluded that EC use among adolescents appear to the rsk factors for tongue pain, inside-cheek pain, or cracked or both teeth.  This recent study may be the first indication that EC use is not without concern.
