Your health is our number one concern. That’s why every regular dental check-up includes an oral cancer examination. Though rare in the general population, smoking, excessive alcohol, and chewing smokeless tobacco increases your risk. Fast growing and aggressive, oral cancer treatment begins with early detection. Oral cancer commonly begins at the sides of the tongue, known as the lateral border. For tobacco chewers, the common location is where tobacco sits in the mouth, inside of your lip or cheek.
If you have concerns or notice any unusual growths in your mouth, contact us immediately for an examination. Like all cancers, early discovery of oral cancer can save your life.
