E-Cigarette Vaping and Periodontium: A Systematic Review
Keywords:E-cigarettes , Vaping , Periodontium , Nicotine , Aerosols
Conventional cigarettes have shown severe toxicity on immune cells and wound healing in the periodontium,
but little is known about the comparative effects of vaping or electronic cigarettes. If current conventional
cigarette users are to transition to a less detrimental alternative, the evidence must demonstrate if electronic
nicotine delivery systems can be deemed safer than conventional options. The intent of this literature is to
summarize the evidences on the effect of E-cigarette on the periodontal health.
The main sources of evidence for this report included: a comprehensive report from National Academies of
Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, reviews published in the past 10 years.
As a conclusion, further investigation and studies are needed to evidence the effect of new smoking methods
on the oral health of newly users and on the shifted persons who was previously tobacco smokers.
