Early Detection Saves Lives
Every day, three Australians are diagnosed with oral cancer, which accounts for more than 6% of all cancers in the country.
The death rate from oral cancer is so high as it is often not caught until it spreads to other parts of the body.
With early detection, however, you have a 90% chance of surviving the disease.
That is why dentists are vigilant about screening patients during dental checkups.
Because dentists are familiar with the structures of the mouth, they are in an ideal position to catch oral cancer early enough that it can be cured.
Risk Factors for Oral Cancer
More men than women develop the disease, and the risk is higher among men who are over 50.
People who smoke or use smokeless tobacco are also in the high-risk category.
The risk increases dramatically if you add heavy alcohol consumption to the mix.
Excessive sun exposure can additionally increase your chances of cancer of the lip.
Regular dental visits can help you maintain good overall health as well as good oral health.
