April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month
At O'Kane & Monssen, we offer Oral ID™ screenings to every patient at every wellness exam.
We are committed to the health and well-being of the mouths in our community! As you already know, regular cleanings and checkups are vitally important to maintain healthy teeth and gums. However, in addition to fighting plaque, regular checkups can also help you and your family fight oral cancer.
During Oral Cancer Awareness Month, please take a moment to consider the last time you were screened and – if it’s been a while – we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us today. Join the movement for better oral health, “Watch Your Mouth” and get screened today.
Oral ID™ uses a proven "fluorescence technology" that provides an aid in visualization of abnormal lesions, including cancer and pre-cancer that may not be apparent to the naked eye. Fluorescence technology has been used in the medical field for many years, and in the dental field it has successfully screened more than 25 million patients in the past decade.
Raising oral cancer awareness has the potential to save lives. April’s National Oral Cancer Awareness Month is the perfect time to start thinking about getting your family screened! Schedule your oral cancer screening by calling us at (651) 698-1242 or request an appointment online.
