    At what age should I start getting screened for oral cancer?

    teeth health smile dentistOral cancer is a killer disease that can be averted by going for regular screenings and leading a healthy lifestyle. But how old should you be to start receiving screenings?

    Key takeaways:

    – Symptoms are persistent mouth sores, numbness, recurring sore throats, white patches on gums and tongue.

    – Non-smokers and people without any symptoms should go for screenings from the age of 18.

    – Smokers should start booking bi-annual screenings as soon as they hit their first tobacco.

    As your dentist is checking your teeth, ask them to assess you for oral cancer.
