Abstract

The prevalence rate of periodontal diseases corresponding to nicotine consumption by means of traditional or electric cigarettes is critical and deserves the attention of dental professionals because tobacco consumption contributes to an aggravation of periodontal disease making dental treatments less successful and increasing the risk of complications. The objective of the study was to determine the prevalence of periodontal disease in relation to the consumption of conventional and electronic cigarettes in students of the Universidad Regional Autónoma de los Andes UNIANDES, Ibarra campus. A survey was carried out with the objective of analyzing the incidence of cigarette consumption, whether traditional or electronic, in students from third to sixth level of the Dentistry course of the Universidad Regional Autónoma de los Andes UNIANDES, Ibarra campus. In addition, articles extracted from PubMed were reviewed to contribute to the research on the consequences of the consumption of nicotine products. It was found that there was a higher rate of tobacco consumption in women, who opt for the use of traditional cigarettes, which is worrisome because despite knowing that it affects their oral health and have bleeding when brushing their teeth, they continue to consume nicotine products. It is concluded that the rate of consumption of nicotine products is high and despite the fact that the students already show warning signs such as bleeding when brushing their teeth, they continue with their habitual consumption
