Preventing oral cancer is a very high priority for us. Dr. Kristopher Alpers knows how dangerous it can be, and we will do everything we can to make sure our patients are taken care of.
Many people are victims of oral cancer because of their advancing age, use of tobacco products, consumption of multiple alcoholic beverages a day and excessive exposure to ultra-violet light. You are also at a high risk for oral cancer if you have had previous forms of cancer in the head or neck.
We do our best to prevent this from happening, and some of our suggestions include consistently brushing and flossing your teeth, refraining from tobacco and alcohol use, limiting your exposure to the sun, exercising regularly, conducting a self-exam every month and adding cancer-fighting foods into your diet. Along with these preventative techniques, your regular dental cleanings at Alpers Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will help prevent oral cancer by allowing us to identify any abnormal signs as early as possible.
