Did you know that mouth cancer is one of the fastest-growing cancers? The truth is, every day, mouth cancer is diagnosed in about 100 individuals. That means that thousands of people in the United States will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone. The earlier we detect the disease, the better the odds for successful treatment. That’s why we perform oral cancer screenings at every visit, checking your mouth for any suspicious-looking swelling, bumps, or sores. We also use advanced VELscope technology to supplement our visual and manual screening. This non-invasive, handheld device emits blue light to expose abnormalities on your tongue and in your mouth that cannot be seen or felt. A VELscope screening takes less than two minutes, but it could save your life!
Oral Cancer Screening Treatment Wilmington, De
Going to the Dentist is not on my top 10 list of things I look forward to or enjoy doing. It is not even in the top 100. But going to Limestone Dental does make it less of a chore. The office is neat and inviting. The staff are very friendly and caring. The atmosphere is relaxing and the comfy chairs and TV almost make me forget that this in not my favorite place to be. I almost forget that someone is in my face with their fingers in my mouth! I like that the Drs. take time to talk to me, explain things and they LISTEN. I have referred friends and co-workers to them and will continue to do so.
