HPV and your Oral Health

A recent study found that gum disease is associated with a higher incidence of Human Papillomavirus (HPV),which is turn has been associated with oral cancer. We recommend reading the report to better understand the effects of HPV on your oral health, and why it’s important to practice good oral health care in order to avoid issues associated with gingivitis, HPV and missing teeth.

Book an appointment with Arbutus North Dental Centre if you suspect you suffer from gum disease or if you find any usual lumps or patches in your mouth. We routinely screen for oral cancer in our patients, and we make sure that your oral health is in great shape.
