When we think about oral cancer, most of us consider it an issue related to tobacco use. And yes, smoking or chewing tobacco are dangerous, but there are other things that can be just as risky.
Oral cancer is also spreading quickly into unexpected parts of the population, like women and young adults. Here are some of the things that can put you at a higher level of risk for this dangerous, often life threatening, disease.
We screen your mouth for oral cancer at every exam, but it is important for you to let us know if there are any unusual spots or sores that are not healing. These oral cancer screenings are one of many reasons it is important to schedule professional cleanings and exams with us at recommended intervals.
Oral cancer screening saves lives. Will yours be one of them?
