ORAL CANCER

Dental examinations, unlike many other cancer screening procedures, are not invasive and are important for the diagnosis and treatment. Like many health problems, frequent tobacco use has been linked to oral cancer. This includes all of its forms, such as cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco.

Our Dentists at Procure Dental may be the first to spot the signs of this illness, which is yet another reason why you should aim for regular dental check-ups. Oral cancer affects any part of the mouth, including the tongue, gums, lips, soft palate, cheeks and the floor of your mouth. From here, the cancer can spread through the upper and lower jaw and into the lymph nodes of the neck before heading further throughout the body.
