APRIL IS ORAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Factors that may increase risk of Oral Cancer
Research has identified a number of factors that may contribute to the development of oral cancer. Historically, those at an especially high risk of developing oral cancer have been heavy drinkers and smokers older than age 50, but today the cancer also is occurring more frequently in younger, nonsmoking people. HPV is related to the increasing incidence of oropharyngeal cancer (most commonly involving tonsillar tissue, including the base of tongue) in that younger population. HPV caused oropharyngeal cancer may present with one or more of the following persistent (longer than two-three weeks) signs and symptoms:
1. a painless lump or swelling felt in the neck
sore throat, difficulty swallowing, or pain when swallowing
2. swelling of the tonsillar areas at the back of the mouth
Be aware of the symptoms and risk factors of oral and oropharyngeal cancer. Early detection and treatment may well be the key to a complete recovery.
If you have never had an oral cancer examination, there is no better time to schedule one than during Oral Cancer Awareness Month in April. When you do, be sure to ask that this examination be made a routine part of all of your future dental check-ups.

Dealing with Pain after Wisdom Teeth Removal
Opioid prescriptions: to fill or not to fill?
Wisdom teeth removal is usually done quickly in the dentist’s office. Though it involves bone surgery, it’s fairly routine.
Your teen may have dissolvable stitches and gauze packed in the surgery site. And unless there are complications, most kids don’t have much pain at all afterwards. Any tenderness or stiff jaw muscles should only last a few days.
Over-the-counter medications can ease your teen’s discomfort. But your dentist may have prescribed a strong opioid pain medicine, too. Before you fill it, here’s important safety information to consider.
Wise wisdom teeth pain relief tips:
1. Try OTCs first
Over-the-counter medications like Advil and Tylenol are safer and more effective. Research shows that a combination of both provides better wisdom teeth pain relief than prescription narcotics.1 Plus, ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory, so it also reduces swelling.
2. Consider the risk of opioids
Opioids are very powerful and can be addictive, especially among teenagers. High-school teenagers who take prescription opioid painkillers are 33% more likely to abuse opioids later in life. And 37% of seniors who take opioids for fun start with their leftover pills.
3. Fill a limited prescription
Soreness should only last a day or two, so you don’t need a 30-day supply of opioids. When your dentist writes the prescription, explain you’d prefer just a few pills. And make sure your teen takes them exactly as prescribed.
4. Don’t keep leftover opioids
Over half of opioids prescribed for pain relief aren’t used.2 And most people store them in the medicine cabinet. But leftover opioids can tempt friends or siblings, so don’t keep them within easy reach – 70% of teens who abuse drugs get them from home.
5. Dispose of pills properly
The FDA recommends flushing unused opioids down the toilet immediately — unless there’s a drug-take back program in your community. Some pharmacies offer disposal solutions, so ask your pharmacist when you pick up the prescription.
