Oral cancers are becoming far more prevalent than in times past. Our living and eating habits have increased the likelihood that you or someone you know will be diagnosed with oral cancer in their lifetime.
In the United States alone over 50,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed every year. The sad truth is that many more lives can be saved with early detection. Far too often people ignore their oral health care, which can be a fatal decision.
The greatest thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to stay up on your semi-annual dental exams and cleanings. Dr. Clark and our hygienists are experts in oral cancer detection. If you ever have sores, swelling, or unexplained tenderness in your mouth, please schedule an appointment immediately. It could be the difference between life and death for you!
