April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Every year in the United States, over 51,000 people are diagnosed with some form of oral cancer. This includes cancers of the mouth, tongue, tonsils and throat. It is a time for everyone to be aware of the dangers of oral cancer and to undergo cancer screenings at their dentist’s office. Early detection greatly improves the chances of a successful recovery. Oral cancer may result in people losing some or all of their teeth, and fortunately, dental implants are great solutions to get those teeth back was the cancer has subsided.
