Oral cancer isn’t discussed as much as periodontal disease and cavities in the dental office, but that doesn’t make it any less dangerous.
Studies show that on average, one American adult dies every hour from this disease, and half of people diagnosed won’t go on to live more than five years past that point.
Thankfully, there’s also a bright side – there is a high rate of successful treatment as long as oral cancer is caught early enough. That’s why Dr. Martin G. Garcia the rest of our team here in San Antonio,Tx make detecting and identifying signs of oral cancer one of our top priorities during check-ups.
With the help of an oral cancer screening, we can keep patients safe and confident in the state of their smile.
Our team wants to be your main line of defense against this destructive condition. During your regular check-ups, we’ll conduct an oral screening, carefully inspecting your soft tissue to determine if there are any cancerous cells or abnormal areas present.
If we do discover something suspicious, we can help you take the next steps toward a concrete diagnosis and further treatment, if necessary.
