Oral Cancer Screening
Unlike the majority of other cancers, oral cancer 5-year survival rates have not improved over the past 20 years. That is because many cases are found too late. Most cancerous lesions can now be detected at a precancerous stage and treated easily. Your dentist and hygienist at Davis County Dental & Orthodontics perform a routine oral cancer screening at each exam. In addition, your hygienist will use advanced fluorescence and transillumination technology annually, which have been proven successful in identifying soft and hard tissue abnormalities in the earliest stages.
