We are firm believers in preventative measures that keep all our patients healthy and happy. 35,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer each year and about 20% of that number will die from the disease. Most of these deaths could have been avoided with early detection and treatment.
Our office uses the Velscope, which is a state-the-art device used to help detect pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions in the mouth. Early detection of these types of abnormalities means less invasive treatment and infinitely greater chances of a complete cure.
