You don’t hear about it often, but oral cancer causes one American death each hour. This mortality rate hasn’t changed in 40 years. However, there is some good news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate!
That’s why we conduct visual screenings for oral cancer at each six-month checkup or cleaning. This examination includes all of the soft tissues of your mouth, as well as your throat, neck, and head.
If the hygienist or doctors see anything that causes concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This type of screening could literally be lifesaving!
