    The best prevention of oral cancer is early detection. The earlier that cancer is detected at our Richmond Hill dental office, the more likely it is to be treatable. Many oral cancers have a high success rate of being treated, especially when diagnosed and treated early.

    What is oral cancer?

    Oral cancer involves abnormal growth in the oral cavity (cheeks, lips, tongue, etc.). It's most commonly found on the floor of the mouth, but can be found anywhere in the mouth. Furthermore, repeated damage from smoking, alcohol and other risk factors can damage the cells inside the mouth and make them more likely to develop oral cancer.

    Our Richmond Hill dental team typically examines for signs of oral cancer during a routine dental exam. This is one of the reasons why it's so important to stay consistent and up-to-date with your regular examination appointments.

    Oral cancer risk factors

    It's also important to keep in mind some risk factors for developing oral cancer so you know what to avoid and what habits to change. These include:

    • Tobacco and alcohol consumption
    • Age
    • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
    • Excessive sun exposure
    • A diet low in fruits and vegetables
    • Weakened immune system
    • Previous cancer
    • Poor oral health

    To reduce the risk of developing oral cancer, try to eat many fruits and vegetables, use sunscreen, avoid tobacco and alcohol, and stay up-to-date with dental examination appointments at our Richmond Hill dentistry.
