Electronic cigarettes are not as safe as people tend to believe. New research findings indicate that the e-cigarettes could be as damaging to the gums and teeth as regular cigarettes.

Key takeaways:

– E-cigarettes are not a healthier alternative to conventional cigarette smoking.

– Vapors from e-cigarettes cause the cells to release inflammatory proteins and may lead to oral diseases.

– The frequency and the amount of e-cigarettes smoked directly determine the level of damage to the gums and oral cavity.

The researchers also found that the flavoring chemicals used in e-cigarettes play a role in damaging cells in the mouth.
