Cancers of the oral cavity

Cancer of the oral cavity may develop at several places in the mouth and throat, such as tongue, lips, palate, salivary glands and tonsils

Today, 70% of oral cancers are diagnosed too late, reducing the chances of recovery. The earlier an oral cancer is detected, the more effective the treatment.

Your dentist can detect oral cancer in its early stages, by performing a clinical examination during the routine visit. This painless examination is simple, takes only a few minutes and requires no sophisticated equipment. Just talk to your dentist.
