Whether in beautiful West Vancouver, BC, or out on a family vacation, anyone of any age can lose one or more teeth at any time.
Whether you’re eight or eighty-eight, a fall can break your front teeth instantly. Large fillings can fail and if the tooth is too weak, it may have to be pulled. When missing teeth are not replaced, the remaining teeth can shift or rotate, changing the bite and making chewing painful and difficult. If the missing teeth are front teeth, embarrassment and self-consciousness result.

Oral Cancer refers to “cancer of the mouth”, but in actuality, the term includes cancers found not only in the mouth, but also involving the lips, nose, tongue, throat and neck. Over 42,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States and 3,200 cases were diagnosed in Canada in 2007. However, in Canada, oral cancer now produces more cases of cancer than either cervical or ovarian cancer, and more deaths than from melonoma and cervical cancer. (Canadian Dental Association).

People 60 years and over are most at risk, but the number of cases is increasing in those under 40. Youth is no longer a protection, especially with the popularity of tanning salons and the use of smokeless tobacco.
