During your regular check-ups we are not only looking for plaque, calculus and decay,  but also checking for signs of cancer.  Regular visits to our office can help detect cancer in an early stage.  In addition, changing a few harmful habits may help reduce the incidence of cancer.

Tobacco and alcohol use increase your risk of cancer dramatically.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted disease associated with about one in six oral cancers.

Sun exposure and poor diet are also cause of oral cancer.

If you notice a sore or something unusual don’t hesitate to call our office to have it checked.
