Oral Cancer on the Rise in non-smokers
Dr. Tyler Williams and our team at Pinecrest Dental encourage you to protect your oral health by visiting our office regularly for oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer can be caused by smoking, tobacco use, and the HPV virus, and can develop in the mouth and throat with little to no visible symptoms. When performing screenings, our dentist utilizes OralID, a fluorescence technology that can identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, and abnormal lesions at early stages to increase the chances of a full recovery. We invite you to contact our office today if you would like to learn more about oral cancer awareness in Taylorsville, Utah.
Oral cancer includes cancers of the lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat (pharynx), sinuses, and hard and soft palate. While oral cancer can usually be successfully treated when detected early, most cases of oral cancer are not detected until they have progressed into a more serious, advanced stage that is much more difficult to treat. In fact, oral cancer may be life threatening. At our office, we are dedicated to doing all we can to detect and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage. During your routine dental cleanings and exams at our office, our dentist and team will perform an oral cancer screening to check for the signs of oral cancer.
