Statistics show that one American dies each hour from oral cancer. Orchard Dental is trying to reduce that number through early diagnosis and prevention. Oral cancer screenings are performed by the dentist at every professional cleaning appointment. An oral cancer screening is non-invasive and completely comfortable. Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to visit us for oral cancer screenings and exams.
As dentists, we know cancer can be deadly, and very tragic for anyone involved. If oral cancer is caught early, it can be treated and quickly removed from the body. Don’t delay. If you have any concerns about oral cancer, come see us soon. Mention this to your dentist at your visit so that we can discuss the signs of this cancer and answer any questions you may have.
