Summary

Vaping, the act of inhaling and exhaling an aerosol produced by a vaping device, has become a growing trend in Canada. Originally introduced with the hope of aiding in smoking cessation without the damaging effects of tobacco, vaping has grown in popularity with no proven cessation benefits. Vaping is not without risk and we are beginning to learn about the potential long-term effects. In fact, the Public Health Agency of Canada is now urging public health officials across the country to report cases of pulmonary illness related to vaping in order to track this serious health complication. Dental hygienists are positioned well to elevate awareness of vaping risks and provide clear messaging to clients.
