April was Oral Cancer Awareness Month

We are fortunate that during April, Dentistry's designated Oral Cancer Awareness Month, all the examinations we performed came up negative! We are grateful for the opportunity to screen all our patients (beginning at age 17) for oral cancer each and every time we perform a dental exam. Over the years, the overall incidence of oral cancers has not dropped, and in fact we are seeing a new type of oral cancer caused by the human papilloma virus. Regular screening and early detection are the keys, as the long-term survival rate for oral cancer has also not improved as much as it has for other cancer types. Even people who wear dentures should have yearly screenings, as they continue to be at risk too.

Let us know your stories, or any questions you may have about this important piece of your oral health care!
