Oral cancer claims the life of one person every hour, with more people dying from it per year than from cervical cancer, laryngeal cancer, testicular cancer, skin cancer, or Hodgkin’s lymphoma. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 28,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed annually, with more than 7,000 of these cases resulting in death. Oral cancer may occur on the mouth, lips, tongue, gums, salivary glands, and throat. Why do so many people die from it? Very often, it’s because a diagnosis isn’t made until the disease has already reached an advanced stage. To effectively treat oral cancer, a diagnosis must be made when it’s first developing.
The most common risk factors associated with oral cancer are tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, constant exposure to sunlight, poorly fitting dentures, and habitual lip or cheek biting. However, a growing number of oral cancer cases are found in patients with none of these risk factors. Many of these, for both women and men, are actually related to HPV. As a result, this makes a regular oral cancer screening important for all patients, not just those who smoke or drink.
Diagnosing Oral Cancer Early with Advanced Technology

Our Houston dentist uses two revolutionary tools to find and treat oral cancer as early as possible:
VELscope and Identafi
Both of these tools are fluorescence-based systems that use light to reveal abnormal tissue at a stage when there are no discernible symptoms of oral cancer. What’s more, an oral cancer screening with one of these tools is completely painless and takes just seconds to complete. Completing an oral cancer screening with VELscope or Identafi is as easy as passing the tool over your teeth. If our dentists find anything during your exam, treatment planning can start immediately. When oral cancer is diagnosed early, the cure rate is as high as 80-90%. Do not wait and risk your life.
