In the United States, oral cancer claims someone’s life every hour. Oral cancer is the only cancer that has not shown a decrease in mortality rate over the past 30 years. This is why early detection is so important. In fact, if oral cancer is detected early enough, the National Institutes of Health report that the five-year survival rate could be as high as 80%.
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we understand the necessity of early cancer detection. This is why we use the Velscope oral cancer screener.
