Capital Dental Care
Oral cancer can be devastating and go unrecognized for too long. There are 330,000 annual deaths attributed to oral cancer.
As a complimentary part of our check ups and comprehensive exams, we provide oral cancer screenings to identify any suspicious areas of the mouth. We refer to the best specialists when further investigation is necessary and provide advanced oral cancer screenings for those with high risk factors.
The Mayo Clinic provides an excellent resource for understanding oral cancer here.
Check Your Mouth, a component of The Oral Cancer Foundation, gives a resource for self examinations you can complete between dental visits here.
The Oral Cancer Foundation shows images of actual oral cancer to help you best understand what to look for here.
