More than one million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year. The Art of Cosmetic Dentistry team believes early detection is key when it comes to oral cancer. Our dentists and hygienists perform a detailed visual examination at every hygiene and exam visit. At your request and by purchase, we can use a specially designed light technology that allows our doctors to see suspicious lesions that the naked eye may not see without aid. Today’s technology helps our dentist identify oral lesions earlier and when cancer is found, treatment is more helpful, less invasive and more successful. Virtually everyone is at risk for oral cancer if they are sexually active, have lifestyle risk factors such as tobacco use, frequent alcohol consumption or have a history of oral cancer. Talk to our team today about your risk factors for oral cancer and the small price you’ll to pay for peace of mind.
