oral cancer, mouth sore, jupiter dentist - Oral Cancer Screening...

Some people worry that common irritations like cankers could be cancer. Although it’s likely nothing, let us take a look.  We are trained to identify abnormalities and nothing makes us happier than to put your mind at ease!

That being said, oral cancer does occur and early detection is crucial.  Only 50% of patients diagnosed survive more than 5 years, but if detected early, the estimated 5-year survival rate goes up to 80%.

Oral cancer often begins as a tiny white or red spot or sore in the mouth or on the lip.  We do a thorough oral check at every recall, so it’s critical that you do not miss appointments.  If you have a sore that can’t be explained or doesn’t heal after a week or so, don’t sit at home worrying…call us!




Monday-Friday 8am - 5pm

Please feel free to give us a call or stop by anytime if you have a question or would like to schedule an appointment.
