Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral Cancer screenings are a routine part of all of our dental exams that involve a careful examination of the inside of your mouth and tongue.

What are some Oral Cancer Risk factors?

  • 90% of patients with oral cancers use tobacco. The risk of developing these cancers increases with the amount smoked or chewed and the duration of the habit. Smokers are 6 times more likely than non-smokers to develop these cancers.
  • 75% to 80% of all patients with oral cancer drink alcohol frequently. These cancers are about 6 times more common in drinkers than in non-drinkers.
  • More than 30% of patients with cancers of the lip have outdoor jobs associated with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
  • A diet low in fruits and vegetables is associated with an increased risk of developing cancer of the oral cavity.

Reduce the risks of Oral Cancer by:

  • Not smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Drinking less alcohol
  • Having a healthier “low meat, low fat” diet, rich in vegetables and fruit.
