It should come as no shock to you that another study published last year concluded with positive results and yet the media never picked up on it.
In December of last year, this study took 110 smokers and had them switch to e-cigarettes.
Their oral health was examined and noted, they then had to self-assess their general health status and their need for a combustible cigarette. These steps were repeated after 60 days, then again after 120 days.
When the first examinations were taken, the group that had been smoking for less than 10 years had only 15 participants that scored a zero for plaque. The group that had been smoking for over 10 years did not have any participants with a score of zero.
By the end of the study, not only did both groups have many patients reporting a reduction in the need to smoke, but 92% of group 1 and 87% of group 2 had plaque scores of zero!
On top of that, both groups had dropped from 35-39% of total participants experiencing bleeding-gums (when probed during examination), to only 2-8% by the end of the study. That's a significant drop in oral health issues.
The abstract then goes on to state “In the light of this pilot study, the e-cigarette can be considered as a valuable alternative to tobacco cigarettes, but with a positive impact on periodontal and general health status.”
So, what are you waiting for? If you've been looking for a reason to make the switch, this is a great one!
