Effects of E-cigarettes and progression long-term smoking

In the dental implant world we know that smoking is detrimental to the success rates of implants.  Some go as far as not placing implants in active smokers.  Well, now we have to contend with e-cigarettes.  Some of the early research on E-cigarettes is showing that even this once thought “benign” habit is actually more detrimental to our health.

If you have any teenager that use E-cigarettes, please have them quit NOW!  Otherwise you may be looking at a long-term smoker when they become older.

See the research below.   This was one of the top 10 articles in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) in 2016.
