Can E- Liquid Rott Your Teeth?
« on: September 07, 2012, 12:20:32 PM »
Hey Guys,
I was watching some reviews on TW's E-Liquid, and in the comment section this guy swears it is rotting his teeth. I wouldn't have brought this up as I don't know if this is true, but I have been using Tw's E-Liquid for close to three weeks now and I have a bad tooth and I noticed it has gotten worse really fast. I don't want to start anything, but has anyone ever mentioned this? Just wondering.

I'd have to guess the likelihood is extremely remote, given the ingredients.  Both glycerin and propylene glycol are found in food products, and most concentrates are likely essences or derived from essences, and particularly in their diluted form are not likely to have a direct impact on tooth decay.  I would be more prone to think that if one already has a bad tooth, the actions of inhaling along with increased saliva production may exacerbate the discomfort, but I doubt there is any causal relationship between the two.

I hate to put a spanner in the works, but when I was smoking I had really sensitive teeth it drove me mad, but since I started vaping they have improved maybe a coincidence I'm not really sure
I can now walk upstairs and not be so out of breath its good all round for me, still struggling with the pyscological aspect of wanting a smoke but am getting there
Its got to be better
Love my E go -c slim

The chemicals that make up the flavors would be the only part of the liquid I could see having anything to do with it. Not saying it does though.

Monday of this week I went to the dentist for a check up, bleeding sums and a loose tooth. I was talking with the dentist about quitting smoking and that I now vape. I had also talked with him about how my gums were bleeding since I quit and was kind of concerned that it was due to vaping. He assured me that it was NOT due to vaping and that alot of times smoking will mask the symptoms of gum disease. He actually told me that QUITTING smoking can reek havoc on your gums, teeth and tongue, but with proper dental care and treatment things get better.

So what I take from my visit is that all of this probably would have occurred even if I quit smoking cold turkey or any other method and that vaping has nothing to do with it.

I was warned by my hygienist that my gums may bleed after giving up smoking.  She suggested it was my mouth getting all the crap out of my system.  However, I have yet to have any bleeding.  If you have bleeding gums and a loose tooth do something about it NOW.  I neglected my gums and now have only 3 teeth left.  I'm only 54

interesting post, Ive never heard of anything like that, but like some of the other members here i also have a few bad teeth and gums but Vaping has Not made anything worse or discomfort for me! a bad tooth will just keep getting worse no matter what you do, except to go get it fixed!

Hey fellow Vapors,
I didn't think vaping would cause rotting of the teeth either. This person who wrote that comment I read swore it would cause damage to one's teeth. If he could read this thread I think he might sing another tune. Thanks very much for all the valueable info. Learned things I didn't know. You all are full of info. Thanks!

This might be a bit of/ a lot of, an eeewww statement.
I have notiuced that since I started vaping, that when I brush my teeth and rinse, the rinse is profoundly more discoloured?
However, my teeth are whiter, less plaque, etc....
Any one else?
The learning curve steepens .....

Far better to know if there is plaque on your teeth and when. I got some tablets from my Dentist that one only has to chew to turn new plaque red and old plaque blue. So you can see how good your dental hygene is at any time  :)

I have had constant bleeding gums since stopping smoking and taking up vaping. My Dentist says it's because smoking masks gum problem and when one stops smoking, the problems then present themselves. I told him I was vaping and he thinks that will not cause any problems.

I have a rotten wisdom tooth which is shortly to be removed. The sooner the better as it's becoming normal to spit out a large mouthful of blood every morning. Not good.

I do hope it's nothing to do with vaping.... I guess no one can really tell... ?

I've been vaping for nearly two years now and have no rotting teeth.
Bleeding gums? Yes, I had them too for a while and I was told this is quite normal after stopping smoking because more blood comes to the surface of the gums to help heal the damage done by smoking.
The time taken for the bleeding to start - and then stop - varies from person to person. In my case it started after about two weeks and stopped altogether after about four months, which is really quite a worrying length of time but, Hey! - they've not done it ever since, and my teeth are sound.

My dentist also told me to expect bleeding gums after stopping smoking.  She said that is quite normal - blood getting to do its job in the gums again.
Have a great time vaping.  Tom

Quite true LIb thats what happened to mine when I quit smoking and got vaping. I had to take it real easy for a while when brushing as they felt tender and needed extra care for some time.  :)
