As parents, there are always things that we need to discuss with our children. Some conversations are easier to have than others, but it is the parents’ job to make important conversations happen. A new topic that parents need to discuss with their children is the growing popularity of vaping.

Vaping is a popular habit that involves inhaling vapor from a vaporizer or electric cigarette. Vaping devices are commonly called vape pens and vape mods. Many teens and young people are looking for ways to appear “cool,” and vape pens are a growing trend. Recent studies show that one in five high school students now use tobacco products, with vaping devices increasing to 78% among young tobacco users. These are troubling statistics for a generation of parents who thoroughly understand the deadly and damaging effects of tobacco use.

It is unfortunate that society promotes bad habits to young people, yet that is the world that we all find ourselves in. Vaping companies have started adding flavoring products to the vaping liquids to entice younger generations to vape. According to a PATH study, 81% of current youth who regularly use vaping devices state that the appealing flavors are the primary reason they engage in vaping.

The dangerous fact of vaping is that it is promoted as a “safer alternative” to smoking. However, that is simply untrue. Ingredients known as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are incredibly dangerous to oral health. These ingredients foster tooth decay, gum infection and disease, and a decrease in saliva production. It is also crucial for parents to know that nicotine is also an ingredient in vaping liquids. Nicotine is a dangerous and highly addictive drug. One vape cartridge can equal the same nicotine amount of two to three packs of regular cigarettes.

There is no way around it – vaping is bad news. Dentists across the United States are trying to bring awareness to the dangerous effects of this bad habit on oral health. At Engineered Smiles, we care about the health of your mouth because we know that there is a direct link between your oral health and your overall health. Now is the time to have a conversation with your children about vaping.

    Jennifer W.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
