Oral cancer screenings are a routine part of dental health exams. Dr. Greenwell at Generations Family Dentistry will conduct thorough oral cancer screening to determine if you are at risk for oral cancer. Some important risk factors to be aware of are smoking and tobacco use, frequent alcohol consumption, working outdoors often, and a diet low in fruits and vegetables. All of these things are associated with oral cancer. To help reduce your risk for oral cancer, don’t smoke or use tobacco, drink less alcohol, and maintain a healthy low fat diet rich in fruit and vegetables. There is no guarantee that you will not develop oral cancer, so it is important to have a regular oral cancer screening. Visit Generations Family Dentistry for your oral cancer screening today!
