In this issue of our newsletter:
An important message about oral cancer from the
American Dental Association
Now precancerous cells can be detected-years before oral cancer can start. See your dentist regularly and ask about a brush test for oral spots.
What You Can Expect as Part of Your Routine Exam:
If a brush test finds unhealthy cells, they can typically be removed, years before they can penetrate the basement membrane and become oral cancer.
What you should know:
1. Most People Will Have
tiny white or red spots in their mouth at one time or another.
2. See your Dentist Regularly
for a thorough oral exam. Although the vast majority of these spots do not contain unhealthy cells, your dentist may recommend further testing.
3. Even If A Lab Identifies
abnormal cells, they can then typically be removed-years before they can harm you.
