Just like your natural teeth, your dental crown can chip or break if you bite into something too hard or if you grind your teeth.

Why You Should Be Screened for Oral Cancer

Girl in Dental Exam | Dental Care Milwaukee WI

The prevalence of oral cancer is on the rise due to its association with HPV, a sexually transmitted virus that affects about one-third of the population. Men are the largest growing demographic and are finding themselves with oral cancer related to HPV after decades of being asymptomatic.

With growing awareness of the link between HPV and oral cancer, many people are choosing to vaccinate their children against this common virus, but 40 percent of the population still do not seek HPV vaccinations for their kids – a disturbingly high number since treatment for oral cancer can be invasive and lengthy.

People who smoke cigarettes or marijuana are more likely to develop oral ...
