Beat Oral Cancer Before It Beats You

 

Oral cancer in houston tx | Royal Dental Oral cancer is a very serious medical condition. In many cases, those afflicted have no idea they have oral cancer until it is well advanced. Almost 42,000 Americans were diagnosed with the condition last year, and unfortunately, only 64 percent of those diagnosed have a five-year survival rate. But with early detection, oral cancer is highly treatable.

See your dentist today

Regular trips to your dentist are critical for early detection. Your visit to your dentist will include a thorough discussion of your health history. This is also the time when your dentist examines every area in your mouth for any signs of oral cancer.

Your oral cancer screening will include a visual inspection and assessment of your mouth. It is important that you religiously adhere to this routine to detect oral cancer at an early stage and improve chances of surviving the disease.

 

What you can do during treatment

 

Once there are signs of oral cancer, you may be required to undergo cancer treatment. Some of the instructions given to you will include proper cleaning of the mouth. As you are undergoing treatment, it is important to brush your teeth, gums, and tongue regularly — specifically after every meal and before bedtime. Make use of fluoride toothpaste or any special fluoride gel that is recommended by your dentist.
