Did you know that more than 50,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year? Unfortunately, over 10,000 of those patients will not survive. At Landmark Smiles, we urge each of our patients to undergo oral cancer screenings periodically. It only takes a couple of minutes and could mean the difference between surviving and not surviving oral cancer.
About Our Scottsdale Oral Cancer Screenings
At Landmark Smiles, we use OralID to aid in our oral cancer screenings. OralID uses fluorescence technology to help with the visualization of abnormal lesions, pre-cancer, and even oral cancer. Oral cancer that is caught early is much easier to treat and often results in much higher survival rates.
