Dr Dental Dental Insurance – Oral Cancer 

12/15/23 12:00 PM

Oral cancers can develop on, under, and at the base of the tongue, on the tissue lining the mouth and gums, and in the throat area at the back of the mouth. You want to look for warning signs, such as a mouth sore that does not go away. Unexplained numbness in the face, mouth, or neck. Problems chewing, speaking, or swallowing. 

Causes of oral cancer can include:

  • Smoking cigarettes and using smokeless tobacco.
  • Drinking heavily.
  • Overexposure to the sun.
  • A family history of cancer.

Oral cancer has also been linked to the human papillomavirus or HPV. Do not let fear keep you from the doctor. Oral cancer that is diagnosed early is treatable and curable. 

Your dentist will often look for any signs of oral cancer when you have your regular dental checks. Providing another good reason why having dental checkups is another good reason to make and keep regular dental appointments.
