Oral Cancer Treatment

When it comes to oral cancer, early detection leads to more treatment options & better outcomes. Using a revolutionary hand-held device, dentists & hygienists can detect potentially cancerous tissue earlier & more easily than before. The system works by emitting a safe blue light that makes tissues in your mouth appear fluorescent, revealing abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye. This system is the only non-invasive device clinically proven to help discover otherwise undetectable signs of oral disease.

Risk factors for oral cancer include:

  • Tobacco use (smoking, chewing & dip)
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Poor diet
  • HPV (human papilloma virus)
  • Age (higher risk over 40 years old)

Oral cancer doesn’t always cause symptoms in the early stages, which is why it’s important to have a screening that can detect potential problems before they’re visible to the naked eye or cause sensations.

Remember that when caught early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90% survival rate. So be sure to ask the dentist or the hygienist for your annual screening!
