Oral cancer includes cancers of the lips, mouth, tongue, cheeks, throat, sinuses and hard palate. Oral cancer is one of the more easily treatable cancers, but only when it is caught in its earliest stages. However, most cases of oral cancer are not detected until they have progressed into more advanced, serious stages and become highly difficult to treat. Like any cancer, oral cancer can be life-threatening. Because of this, we are dedicated to providing regular oral cancer screenings to check for disease and get you the necessary treatment to protect your overall health. This screening will usually take place during your regular dental checkups with our dentist and team.
