Is Vaping Safer Than Smoking Cigarettes? - What We Do and Don't Know

Recent research suggests that the heated and pressurized liquids in e-cigarette cartridges create the right environment for a dangerous combination of microbes. Thus, it is critical that dental professionals are aware of the current patterns of use of e-cigarettes and vaping products, and the risk they pose to oral health.
