Cancers in dentistry
To date, despite the high level of modern medicine, there is no understanding of the causes of cancer, including those in the maxillofacial region. But there are several factors that can serve as a catalyst for the development of cancer problems in the oral cavity. Among these factors:
smoking, inhalation of tobacco smoke, chewing tobacco;
Too much too cold or hot food;
Prolonged irritation of the mouth, for example, the sharp edge of the crumbling of the tooth, or inflammation due to other reasons (underlying diseases such as dyskeratosis, long-term healing fissures, ulcers, leukoplakia).
Chronic inflammation within the tooth, and at its base, which is a long period of untreated (cyst, periodontitis, pulpitis)
Some structural features of the jaw bone, and the formation and eruption of the teeth, in which there are changes at the cellular level.
