April is here and you know what that means! Sealy Dental Center located in Sealy, TX is proud to honor Oral Cancer Awareness Month which is honored every year by the oral cancer foundation to bring awareness to the condition. What is oral cancer you ask? Oral cancer is a growth that can occur on the mouth, neck, throat, and even roof of your mouth that does not go away for weeks at a time. Oral and pharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and upper throat) collectively kills nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Dentistry is the best way to catch early signs of oral cancer so that is why is it VERY important to make a yearly appointment with the doctors at Sealy Dental Center in Sealy TX for your oral cancer screening.
Here at Sealy Dental Center, we are proud to have the utmost technology to scan your mouth to detect anything precancerous. If you are having any of the symptoms below please contact our office immediately to make an appointment with one of our doctors:
