Risks for Oral Cancer & Oral Cancer Screening
There are some patients that may be at a higher risk for oral cancer, especially if:
- You are a smoker
- You are a heavy drinker
- You do not make regular visits to the dentist
- You have a family history of oral cancer
- You have had significant amounts of sun exposure, particularly on your lips
- You have a previous history of any type of cancer
If caught early enough, oral cancer screenings can lead to additional testing that could provide a more definitive answer about potential cancer. These screenings are generally non-invasive and fast and have been proven to help save many lives. Sores, scabs that will not heal or any abnormal area of the mouth should be examined by a medical professional and our team at Oak Tree Family Dental can help.
