Your Mouth (Oral)

How To Reduce Your Chances
Of Getting Oral Cancer

 

  • Learn to do your monthly self-checks. Check your mouth regularly for any unusual sores or lesions.
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups. A dentist can assess your mouth thoroughly for abnormalities and is trained in detecting signs of oral cancer.
  • Look after your teeth and mouth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day.
  • Seek advice from a dentist or health professional asap if you notice any unusual symptoms or sores on your lips or in and around your mouth.
