One person dies every hour from oral cancer in the United States. Late detection of oral cancer is the primary reason that mortality rates are so dismal. As with most other cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. Though tobacco use is a major predisposing risk factor, 25% of oral cancer victims have no lifestyle risk factors.
Oral Cancer Detection
Early detection is vital to the survival of any cancer. Oral cancer is no different.

I had been going to the same dentist since I was a little girl and they were really good, but they didn't specialize in some things that I needed to get done. After coming to East Taylor, they found all kinds of things that were wrong with some of my teeth because they have the state of the art equipment that can pinpoint things my other dentist could not. They tell you how much it will cost before the work gets done and print you out an itemized sheet so you can plain your next step; no surprises. It does help that everyone I have met in the office are very welcoming and have wonderful attitudes and there no pressure in getting things done right away you can't afford right now; these guys are awesome.
