Electronic Cigarettes: What Are They and How Can They Affect Your Oral Health?

Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat a cartridge containing a liquid solution to create an aerosol that the user can inhale. This process is called “vaping.” The solutions usually contain nicotine, flavouring agents, a diluent, and various other chemicals. Because the industry is not regulated in Canada, there is no control over the exact contents of the cartridges.
