Oral Cancer Screening is one of the keys to early detection and treatment for an oral condition that can lead to serious and often fatal consequences. Studies have shown that the chances for oral cancer survival are about 80 to 90% with early diagnosis and treatment.
Central Guelph Dentistry offers oral cancer screenings as part of your oral care exam at our clinic. It is important to be aware that early warning signs of oral cancer may not be noticeable in its early stages unless examined by a professional. And this is exactly the reason why it is important for you to go through this as part of your routine screenings. We highly recommend that for the patients who consume alcohol and/or tobacco products, to undergo oral screening twice a year while at least once a year for those who don’t.
If it’s time for you or a loved one to have a routine check up and you want oral cancer screening included, please feel free call Central Guelph Dentistry for your comprehensive dental assessment. We will be happy to help you become oral cancer-free for the rest of your life.
