Vapers more likely to have gum disease as e-cigarettes change mouth bacteria

26 February 2020 – Telegraph

Scientists recently learned that vaping changes the oral microbiome, which is the population of bacteria and microorganisms that live in the mouth, and promotes those that cause disease.

Researchers from New York University College of Dentistry analysed the mouth bacteria of 119 who either smoked, vaped or did neither and found that those who neither smoked nor vaped had the lowest risk of gum disease (28.2%). This was in comparison with 42.5% cent of e-cigarette users and 72.5% of smokers.
