Vaping chemicals could cause dental health problems, NBC affiliate WJFW reports.

Vaping can cause cavities and, if teeth aren't properly cared for, dental health can decline.

Kricket Koehn, DDS, a dentist at Rhinelander, Wis.-based Northwoods Family Dental, is especially concerned about the effect vaping will have on younger people.

"The viscus aerosols that are a lot of times in the cigarettes can lead to a lot of different health concerns because they change how cells interact with each other can lead to worse consequences," Dr. Koehn told WJFW.
