The Effects of E-Cigarettes on Caries Development

With the rise in popularity of vaping over the last decade, researchers have been hard at work investigating the potential risks e-cigarettes pose to oral health.

One such study, recently carried out at the Faculty of Dental Medicine at Laval University, examines the impact of e-cigarettes on the oral microbiome and caries.

In this informative discussion, Chiraz Guessaier, Manager CDA Oasis, invites corresponding author, Dr. Mahmoud Rouabhia, to present his findings and offer practical advice to dentists on how they can best manage patients who use e-cigarettes.


  • Ask patients whether they are using e-cigarettes.
  • Explain the dangers of e-cigarettes to patients.
  • Stress the importance of teeth brushing after e-cigarette use.
