April is national oral cancer awareness month, which raises awareness on oral cancer screenings and facial protection. Facial protection meaning promoting and using protective gear, such as mouth guards and helmets to help prevent dental facial injuries from sports and recreational activities.
Did you know according to ADA’s consumer report, over 51,000 people are diagnosed with cancers of the mouth, throat, tonsils and tongue each year. We incorporate oral cancer screenings at every check up, however we encourage everyone to practice and complete at home at home as well.
Our health is very important, take all steps necessary to educate, inform and complete tests at home. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to learn more call our office today.
