Jonathan B. Levine, DMD, Dentistry, answeredAlways remember, early detection is vital to prevention. The earliest prevention lies in making slight changes to your lifestyle. You can lower your risk of oral cancer while maintaining a healthier lifestyle by limiting alcohol consumption and tobacco use, limiting exposure to UV radiation or excessive sun, practicing safe sex, and eating foods high in antioxidants.
