It's a sad commentary but the facts are that 1 American dies every hour from oral cancer. The really sad part is that, if detected early, 85-90% of oral cancer is treatable! But, the survival rate for cancer of the mouth and throat is the same today as it was 50 years ago.
At Marks Family Dentistry we perform a thorough oral cancer exam on every patient at every exam appointment- and, we are one of the very few area offices that uses the "Velscope"- cutting edge technology that can detect oral cancer before it can spread. It works by emitting a specialized wave length light that is viewed through special optical filters. Abnormal tissue cells appear dark and can be spotted even though the area looks normal under normal lighting conditions.
Someday most offices will have this technology...at Marks Family Dentistry we think you deserve it today!
