Catch Oral Cancer Early At Q.T. Dental
Early Detection Is Crucial For Beating Oral Cancer
Oral cancer is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent forms of cancer today, but it doesn’t receive much attention compared to breast and lung cancer, and that’s a major part of the problem. Because few people realize that oral cancer is a risk, they often don’t get diagnosed until it’s past the early stages, which makes it much more dangerous.
What Is Oral Cancer Screening?
One of the best things about oral cancer screening is that it’s so quick and easy that we can do it during your regular cleaning appointments at Q.T. Dental. The screening mainly consists of checking the tissues of your mouth for any irregularities, such as unusual textures or white or red spots. Everyone should be screened for oral cancer regularly, but it’s particularly important for those with risk factors such as smoking, tobacco use, previous history of oral cancer, alcohol use, and age.
