At the office of Robert W Marder DMD, PLLC, we perform oral cancer screenings to protect you from this harmful disease. We will examine any patches and sores in your mouth to determine whether they are precancerous, and we may even perform a biopsy on suspicious areas. These screenings are important because if we are able to catch cancer earlier on, then it is easier to heal and less likely to reoccur. Please call our dentist if you want to receive a screening for oral cancer in New City, New York.
The American Cancer Society estimates that over 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year. In over 7,000 of these cases, the result will be death. Because we truly care about our patients, we provide an oral cancer screening during every regular cleaning and exam. When we are able to catch oral cancer early on, there is a better chance that it can be effectively treated.
It is important to contact our office immediately if you notice any lumps, red patches or sores, or hard white/gray lesions, as these may be signs of oral cancer. We will do everything in our power to take care of you and help you enjoy a healthy, pain-free life.
