Are You at Risk for Oral Cancer?
It is a staggering statistic, but every hour one American dies from oral cancer. This rate has remained the same for the last 40 years! Luckily, 90% of cases can be cured if detected in the early stages. The VELscope™, an FDA-approved technology, uses a special light that renders any abnormal tissue easily visible during the exam. This highly effective screening could save your life!
Prevent Knocking Out a Tooth
When participating in any sport, it is possible to have one or more teeth knocked out. Each year in the United States, approximately 5 million teeth are lost due to injury while playing sports. There are over-the-counter mouthguards that do not provide good protection and, since they are one-size-fits all, they do not always fit properly. We offer custom-made mouthguards that give the best fit and protection without interfering with athletic performance. The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: acrobatics, football, boxing, field hockey, gymnastics, handball, lacrosse, racquetball, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, rugby, skydiving, roller hockey, soccer, squash, basketball, surfing, volleyball, ice hockey, water polo, weight lifting, martial arts, and wrestling.
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at (703) 897-0463.
