Mouth Cancer Prevention In Wetaskiwin

oral cancer screening with a dentist Wetaskiwin and LeducOral cancer, or mouth cancer, is a serious condition with serious consequences. Over half of the patients with mouth cancer die within five years of their diagnosis. The earlier you are diagnosed and treated for oral cancer, the more likely the treatment is to be a success.

At Dr. Mahoney’s office, we protect you by offering a regular oral cancer screening. Every time you come into our office for a regular check-up, Dr. Mahoney will personally check your mouth for signs of oral cancer.

In addition to this routine check, we also recommend an oral cancer screening procedure at least once a year. We perform our professional oral cancer screenings with VELscope technology.

At our office, we recommend early and frequent oral cancer screenings for several reasons:

  • Security | When you receive regular oral cancer screenings, you should feel safer and more secure in your oral health.
  • Safety | If you or a loved one has oral cancer, the earlier the cancer is detected, the easier it is to treat. Once the cancer has spread, the success rate of treatment starts to decrease. The best way to keep yourself safe from the negative effects of mouth cancer is to make sure it’s detected early.
  • Accuracy | Our oral cancer screenings are an accurate way to ascertain whether you or a loved one has oral cancer.
  • Ease and Convenience | Oral cancer screenings are easy to administer and don’t take much time. You can feel confident in your oral health and keep yourself safe with minimal time investment or inconvenience.
