Oral Cancer is on the rise, and it is not just tabacco users who are at risk. Over 37,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year.
Routine screening is done during your regular dental check up. Because oral cancer can spread very quickly, early detection is important. It can save your life! Thankfully, we offer the most advanced oral cancer screening technology available with our Velscope. Many offices charge over $50.00 for this screening , we offer it to our patients for $5.00!! Because oral cancers have been linked to HPV (human papillomaviris) this type of cancer has nearly tripled in the last 10 years.
The 5 year survival rate for oral cancer diagnosed early is 75% as compared to 20% for late diagnosis.
