Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April is oral cancer awareness month. What is your risk? While tobacco and chewing tobacco, along with alcohol are still major risk factors, the fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients are young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals due to the HPV or Human Papilloma Virus . During your regular checkup, we check your entire mouth for signs of cancer. Regular check-ups can detect the early stages of oral cancer or conditions that may lead to oral cancer. Stop high risk behaviors. Cigarette, cigar or pipe smoking, use of smokeless tobacco and excessive use of alcohol are habits
that increase your risk of oral cancer. 

in addition to a visual and digital exam to screen for oral cancer, we use VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System, which utilizes a wireless, handheld scope that observes natural tissue fluorescence to help discover oral tissue abnormalities that might otherwise have been overlooked. This technology has been cleared by the FDA, and approved by Health Canada, and the World Health Organization.
