I would like to share something that almost made switching from analogs to vaping impossible for me. When I first started vaping everything was great! I was so happy to be able to smoke and not have all the horrible things that go with smoking. I immediately was hopelessly hooked when I started trying all the amazing flavors! Then the vapor started to hurt my teeth. Like chewing on tin foil. I was really upset. I could not find ANY information on this other than people asking for help and receiving ‘see a dentist’ for help. I do not have dental insurance and all my extra funds just went into vape supplies. So the dentist would not be an immediate thing, for me at least.

This was really upsetting me because I had spent so much money on vaping supplies and it was quickly becoming something that made me cringe. I began brainstorming and experimenting. When I vaped it felt like I was chewing on metal or something. When I would drip the pain was MUCH worse than when I used my ego with a vision Stardust. That led me to the conclusion of the more distance FROM the actual metal the better. I stopped dripping immediately and just used the stardust. This helped but the pain was still present.

I solved the problem on my own I am glad to say! Vaping was making me brush my teeth more because it made my mouth dry. Currently i do not notice the dry mouth. I think my body has adjusted to vaping. So..i immediately did a fluoride treatment with Colgate PreviDent 5000 Plus. I cut back on brushing 4~6 times a day. I also started using a daily toothpaste with higher fluoride for sensitive teeth. I also do fluoride treatments every week or two with a prescribed high fluoride toothpaste I have had for years. Within two days I was vaping pain free.

I have an appointment with my dentist to get my teeth sealed as smoking has made my gums recede some and my enamel is thin, thus the pain. Analogs are horrible horrible things.

    Pretty interesting. Ever since I’ve become sensitive almost about the smell of my breath. Its as though quiting analogs has made my perception of smell intensify enough for me to brush my teeth 4 times a day and never am i without a stick of gum.

    Few people have told me their teeth felt pretty funny after they tried my pv out.

    Yes quitting smoking definitely helps in restoring your smell, among other things. I hope this helped. I could not find any help on this, I hope me putting this out helps many.

    I KNOW that the smoking for 27 years…well, it didn’t do my teeth/gums any good either! Now that I’m vaping… I can tell a difference in almost every aspect of my health!

    I am actually looking at gum implants!!! Booo!! I love my teeth and would be SOOOO sad if I ever got gum disease from my gums being so receded Thank you for reading my blog and your comments mean a LOT to me.

    Does Vaping bother you at all?

    My dentist told me to use Sensodyne and not rinse or drink for at least 20 minutes after brushing…Hope that helps anybody that is having this seemingly infrequent issue.

    Analogs are horrible all around. I knew they were bad, but it wasnt until i started vaping that i started realizing what the REAL problem in my life was. I fully feel your pain here.

    I highly recommend seeing your dentist! Cigarrettes are poison..so for 35 years the bacteria in your mouth has most likely been kept to a minimum…not having those poisons killing bacteria in your saliva could very well have bacteria running unchecked.

    Is dripping a term for smoking the juice w out using a wick on certain coils ?

    When you use an atomizer and drip the ejuice on the heating element is dripping..the taste is great..but it hurys my teeth. I am using yhe Kanger tech clearomizers now and they are BOMB! Love em! When i wrote this the clearomizers were just starting to evolve.
