Oral cancer is the sixth deadliest cancer in the world

Early detection at your Lorton dentist can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly even save your life.

Oral Cancer Screening

With over 30,000 new cases diagnosed each year, oral cancer has become the sixth deadliest cancer in the world. In fact, oral cancer claims the life of one American every hour. That’s why at your Lorton dentist, we take this issue very seriously and strive to provide the best detection and prevention methods possible.

 

 

Oral Cancer Risk Factors

Oral cancer isn’t limited to just older people or alcohol and tobacco users, more and more people under the age of 40 are being diagnosed as well, and 25% of all people diagnosed do not drink alcohol or use tobacco products. Unfortunately, most cases go untreated and the cancer isn’t discovered until late stages of development – the reason why oral cancer has such a high mortality rate. Early detection is crucial; 90% of oral cancers are curable if discovered early.
