We take the fight against oral cancer seriously. Early detection plays a vital role in cancer treatment and outcomes-research fund, which is why we established the Premier Dental of Ohio Cancer Research fund. Dr. Crook provides a standard screening of the head, neck and mouth to discover signs of oral cancer in patients at our Johnstown practice.
The need for screening.
Oral cancer incidence has been growing at an alarming rate year over year. The primary drivers include tobacco & alcohol use and the pervasive presence of HPV (Human Papilomavirus), which can be transmitted to the mouth and throat. Consider these facts:
Roughly 36,000 cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed this year. (American Cancer Society)
40% of those diagnosed will die within five years. (National Cancer Institute)
The high oral cancer mortality rate is due to late-stage diagnosis. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
Exposure to the HPV-16 virus is the fastest-growing risk factor for oral cancer. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
Men above the age of 45 and elderly patients have the highest risk of developing oral cancer. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
90% of oral cancer occurs in patients 45 years or older, which encompasses “all” 84M Baby Boomers. (Oral Cancer Foundation)
