In brief: No
Glycerine is used in many medicinal forms/additive---as in artificial saliva, moisturizer in nasal sprays, and osmotic laxatives etc.
..Its use as an artificial saliva should infact have a protective effect on your teeth. I am not a dentist, so you may want to consult your dentist for additional inforamation. Good luck.
