The study marks the first of its kind, shedding light on a novel aspect of oral health among users of combustion-free nicotine products. These findings underscore the aesthetic benefits associated with ECs and HTPs use, signifying a significant departure from the well-known dental color implications of tobacco smoking. As patients increasingly prioritize aesthetics, evident in the growing prevalence of purely cosmetic dental procedures, and with smoking being a prevalent factor, this result serves as a compelling incentive to quit smoking.
As explained by researchers, study data demonstrated the objectivity and reliability of these digital tools when assessing plaque accumulation and they should be used in conjunction with comprehensive clinical examination in order to ensure a holistic assessment of oral health.
Researchers compared measurements of dental plaque among current, former, and never smokers using an innovative light-induced fluorescence technology. Objective quantification of dental plaque was necessary to conduct reliable comparisons between smokers and non-smokers.
