Oral care and cancer prevention?

From what I've read, alcohol promotes oral cancers (why mouth wash isn't recommended). I assume that brushing and rinsing after smoking a cigar would help to reduce oral cancers as well as limiting the amount of alcohol consumption during smoking (yeah right).

I hope this helps

That may be the best internet photo i have EVER seen!!

From firsthand knowledge, go to the dentist regularly! Twice a year. This is the best thing you can do. Not only can they spot problems early (usually treatable with oral cancers), but keeping your teeth free of cavities and such helps prevent disease not only in the teeth, but in the jaw.

That's a very good point as well.

I recently went to my dentist (after 8 years - LOL - no cavities btw).

They are "high tech" now and one thing includes an oral cancer screening where you rinse for 2 minutes with a mouth wash and then they shine some light in your mouth. It's apparently an effective early detection screening.

Recommended 1/yr for tobacco users every 2 years for non-tobacco users.

None of that for me. All the hygienist did was stick her fingers in my mouth to feel for lumps or anomalies... I was thinking, "I could've done that!"

Unfortunately by the time the oral cancer screening exams show evidence, you got cancer. Ok that's not completely true as some leukoplakia may be precancerous. Early detection and treatment is the goal. The latest word is that performing oral cunnilingus is a risk factorm so just say no to oral sex.

Is this due to pap virus? Which is also thought to be causative of cervical cancer etc?

Never cigars.

I'd like to think I'm as sensitive as the next guy (well, Australian Guy) but when talk on a website for Cuban Cigars turns to matters Gyno, my brain tends to check out.

Yes I believe it is the Pamiloma virus getting the blame.

Colt they do recomend the dental rubber damn as a prophylatic when performing oral sex but I say screw it.;-)

Look guys were are all going some day but we should avoid the big risk factors and the rest be damned.

And they are;

1. shooting yourself in the head with a pistol

2. walking out infron of speeding trucks

3. ******* monkeys with aids

4. getting married.

Sorry was that last one a little cynical?;-)
