All adults should have regular screenings for cancer of the mouth and throat, especially
those with a history of smoking or alcohol use, a family history of such cancers, or exposure to
the human papillomavirus (HPV), as it is a known risk factor for the development of these types
of cancer. Nevertheless, it's important for everyone to include regular cancer screenings as part
of their comprehensive dental care to ensure optimal oral health. You can ask our dentist in Miami, FL, for an oral cancer screening when you come to our office for a regular dental checkup.
