If you or a loved one ever had to endure cancer, then you know the sooner it is found the better it can be addressed. Oral cancer is serious and can be a threat to your health if not checked regularly. That is why, our team here at Advanced Dental Care in Burlington, Massachusetts, offers screenings with every dental checkup, and has this information for you about oral cancer.

Oral cancer can activate anywhere in your mouth, lips, cheeks, teeth, gums, tongue, throat, and the roof or floor of your mouth. Did you know, multiple studies have shown that the oral cavity, also known as your mouth, is the key to a healthy body and life? There have also been various studies to prove your oral health is linked to conditions like heart disease and strokes, along with other health conditions. That is why keeping top-notch care of your mouth can help save your life in the long run.

Like all cancer, it can develop in diverse places and you find it in different stages. The earlier it is found and addressed, the better odds you have at overcoming it. That is why, Dr. Christopher McGonigle does an oral cancer screening every time you come in for your dental checkup, so you can feel safe and know you are oral cancer free. Keeping up with these important dental appointments are also vital for your oral health and for discovering cancer early should it exist.
