And, if you’re sexually active, here’s another reason to get screened. The human papilloma virus (HPV) is an extremely common sexually transmitted infection and especially prevalent in young adults. Few people even know they have it. HPV has long been known to cause cervical cancer and now studies suggest it also plays a role in more than 20% of oral cancer cases.

According to the American Cancer Society, more women in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year than will be diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Clinical studies have determined that using ViziLite Plus after the standard oral cancer examination improves the dental professional’s ability to identify and evaluate suspicious areas at their earliest stages. When premalignant lesions or early stage oral cancer is found, treatment is simpler, less invasive and more than 90% successful.

ViziLite Plus is an easy, quick and painless examination that gives us the best chance to find any oral abnormalities you may have at the earliest possible stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Individuals with specific risk factors, including adults who engage in tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, carry human papillomavirus (HPV), or have a family history of cancer, are advised to seek an annual oral cancer screening. Regular screenings can aid in the early detection of potential oral health issues and contribute to more effective treatment outcomes.

The most effective strategy for reducing the risk of developing cancers related to smoking or using oral tobacco products is to refrain from initiating such habits. Additionally, quitting tobacco significantly diminishes the risk of these cancers, even after prolonged use. It’s crucial to note that heavy alcohol consumption alone is also a standalone risk factor for these cancers. Therefore, adopting a lifestyle that avoids both tobacco use and excessive alcohol intake is a key preventive measure.
