This is a pretty common question when somebody switches from regular cigarettes to vaping. One of the many downsides to smoking cigarettes is how it affects your teeth over the long-term. Not only does it stain your teeth but it
Not only does it stain your teeth but it can damage your gums and could eventually lead to mouth cancer.
But let's take a look at why it has this effect.
Many assume that it's simply the chemicals you inhale through the mouth that cause the damage - and yes, they definitely speed the process up - but the real damage is done through the loss of your body's immune system that long-term exposure to these chemicals cause.
Your immune system is responsible for not only keeping your respiratory system (nose, throat and lungs) clean of infections like colds, pneumonia and similar illnesses, but it's responsible for the rest of your body too! This includes your mouth, or more specifically, your gums.
When your body cannot fight the bacteria that builds up in your mouth it will eventually turn into gum disease and if nothing is done, the bone that holds the teeth in place will begin to recede and your teeth may start to fall out (in severe cases).
Now if we take a look at vaping and the ingredients within e-liquid, the effect on your immune system will be far less than smoking cigarettes. That isn't to say there isn't an effect at all, it's still too early to know if there are any long-term issues but the current research shows a significant decrease in health issues when switching from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes.
As for non-immune related mouth issues such as staining of the teeth, there have been no known incidents of peoples teeth changing colour due to vaping. Nor have there been any studies that found links between discolouration of the teeth due to inhaling vaporized e-liquid.
