The Importance of Oral Cancer Screenings, from The Plano Dentist

Categories: dental health

In our continuing efforts to provide the most advanced technology and highest quality care available to our patients, The Plano Dentist screens our patients for oral cancer. The fact is, every hour of every day in the U.S., someone dies of oral cancer, which is the sixth-most common diagnosed form of the disease. The five-year survival rate is only 50 percent, and oral cancer is one of the few cancers whose survival rate has not improved.

Early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. Ask us about a screening at your next appointment!
