They are still undecided on baby girl’s name, any suggestions Springfield Dental Family?

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, in 2020, an estimated 5,400 Canadians will be diagnosed with oral cancer. 1,500 Canadians will die as a result. Early detection is so important to increase the chance of a positive treatment outcome. Dr Buschel and our team perform oral cancer screenings with every exam. Even when individuals have dentures (and no natural teeth), it is important that they see a dentist at least once a year for an oral cancer check.

Risk Factors for Oral Cancer:
•Over 45 years old, increased further over 60 years old
•Male (higher risk 2:1)
•HPV+
•Sexually active and not regularly tested for STIs
•Use tobacco products
•High alcohol intake or consistent alcohol intake
•Lips exposed to the sun on a regular basis without protection
•Diet low in fruits and vegetables
•Poor oral health

Signs and Symptoms for Oral Cancer (lasting longer than 2 weeks):
•Unexplained bleeding
•Change in taste or tongue sensation
•Lumps located on the lips, tongue or neck
•Sores or patches in the mouth that do not heal
•Lumps or changes in the texture or colour of the mouth tissue
•A sore throat that is persistent and/ or difficulty with swallowing
•Dark red or white patches in the mouth, or on your lips or tongue
