E-cigarette vapors could be toxic to oral cavity, UCLA study finds
A new UCLA study suggests that e-cigarettes may not be significantly safer than tobacco cigarettes. The research, which was conducted on cultured cells, found that e-cigarettes contain toxic substances and nanoparticles that could kill the top layer of skin cells in the oral cavity. Based on their findings, the researchers believe that similar results could happen in a human study and that e-cigarettes could increase users’ risk for oral disease. The findings, published online in the journal PLOS One, also suggest that health care providers should do more to raise public awareness of the products’ health risks. The us...

ConclusionsIt was confirmed that PA does not denature endogenous enzymes of dentin matrices, but it may somehow modulate the expression and activity of these enzymes in a concentration-dependent manner.Clinical significanceEndogenous proteases have been identified and suggested to be responsible for the digestion of dentin matrix when activated by the acidic components of dental adhesives. Proteolytic activity of dentinal MMPs showed to be dependent on phosphoric acid concentration. The clinically-used concentration (37%) does not inhibit MMPs activity, but slows it.
