According to a research published in the British Journal of Cancer, the bacteria that causes periodontitis seems to play part in the growth of pancreatic and oral cancers. Most people use strategies like quitting tobacco products, cleaning their teeth regularly, curbing alcohol consumption, and observing a good diet to prevent the illness. However, having your dental health evaluated by the Garden City Dental team, especially if you are a Garden City resident, should be part your cancer detection and prevention strategy.
Dr. Dominique Lizzio, Dr. John Cerrato, and Dr. George Sheehan will be able to detect periodontitis or other conditions earlier on, making it easier to treat early before it causes complications in the future. Your Garden City dentists also perform oral cancer screenings to make sure any anomalies are detected early and and are treatable.
For more information on how you can prevent oral and other forms of cancer that may be linked to periodontitis, schedule an appointment with a qualified Garden City, NY dentist.
