Dr. Motiwala and his team at Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre would like to take this chance to talk about mouth cancer, how it kills people, and what it could mean for you and your family. Oral cancer is one of the few cancers that is actually getting more common, so we want our patients to know what it is and how to protect themselves.
Oral cancer includes cancers of the mouth, tongue, throat, tonsils, and a few others. More than 5,000 people will die from some form of mouth cancer just this year. Dr. Motiwala wants to teach people how to recognize it and stay safe.

- You’re losing weight too quickly.
- Your teeth or dentures seem to have moved.
Are You at Risk of Developing Oral Cancer?
As with the symptoms, there are a lot of similar risk factors for oral cancer, but you need to know something very important before you start putting risk factors together and start to worry. Even if you have most or all of these, it doesn’t mean you will definitely get mouth cancer.
On the other hand, even if you don’t have any of the risk factors, you can still get mouth cancer. We just want you to know when you should think about going to Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre for an appointment. Here are the most common things that can cause mouth cancer:
- Using tobacco in any way
- Too much time in the sun
- Drinking too much drink
- Cancer has always been in the family
- HPV stands for human papillomavirus
