Does Smoking a Juul Cause Teeth to Turn Yellow?
Many people have turned to a Juul, a type of e-cigarette in an effort to become “healthier” smokers. Rather than producing smoke, Juuls produce vapor, which does not contain any of the harmful chemicals found in a traditional cigarette.
Juuls use a liquid mixture of distilled water, nicotine, and flavoring ingredients to turn into vapor when inhaled. The good news is that these liquid ingredients don’t typically cause any yellow teeth, plaque buildup, or bad breath. However, since they do contain nicotine, they can hinder your ability to produce saliva and may put you at risk for dry mouth and cavities.
The good news, however, is that you can select how much nicotine you’d like your e-cigarette to contain. Of course, lower levels are better for your oral health. While e-cigarettes are safer than traditional cigarettes, they should still be avoided as much as possible as they can cause some oral issues.
