The month of April has been dedicated oral cancer awareness month. This deadly form of cancer claims one life an hour in the US alone and has a 50% mortality rate five years beyond diagnosis. With startling statistics like these, it’s no wonder that medical professionals and researchers are dedicated to raising awareness. One of the best ways you can celebrate oral cancer awareness month is by visiting your trusted dentist for an oral cancer screening. During these appointments, you’ll receive a gentle examination looking for the common warning signs of this disease. By receiving regular screenings during your preventive dentistry appointments, you may significantly reduce your chances for oral cancer.
