oral cancer screening early detection

Early Detection Improves Outcomes of Oral Cancer Treatment

This year, over 40,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer. The most frequent instances of oral cancer occur in smokers over 50, though individuals who have contracted the human papilloma virus (HPV) are also at risk. Survival rates — normally around 64% — are dramatically improved with screening and early detection.

In fact, people have an 80-90% chance of surviving cancers that are found at early stages.  Your dentist can conduct a non-invasive screening by visually inspecting the mouth and throat and conducting a gentle palpation of the neck.

Your teeth can make you look younger

Your Smile Can Make You Look Younger, Smarter and More Successful

Surprise! The fountain of youth has been in your dentist’s office all along. A recent survey conducted by Oral B found that a healthier-looking smile makes people look younger.

What’s even more surprising is that cosmetic dental work, and particularly teeth whitening, was found to be more effective in restoring a youthful appearance than a facelift.

It turns out that most people believe that your smile is the first indicator of youth, financial success, and education.

Whiten Your Teeth to Get Hired

Studies show that people are 58% more likely to be hired and 53% more likely to receive larger salary offers after a teeth whitening treatment.

February is National Children's Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health Month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. I, a dental hygienist of 10+ years with Creating Smiles Dental, have done many dental health presentations. I have done them for my own older kids and since most of their classmates are the same from year to year, I took a year off this past fall for the Great American Teach In and talked about other things. Well guess what, my preschooler’s class had not heard my presentation yet, so I asked if I could present to the class. The teachers were thrilled and asked if I could talk to the other VPK class at the school as well and of course … Read the rest

Dental Emergency and No Insurance? 5 Things You Need to Know

Dental emergencies are just that – emergencies.

A broken tooth may seem like nothing more than an uncomfortable cosmetic problem, but broken teeth are at high risk for infection. If left untreated, infections can spread to the blood and brain. Prompt attention to dental emergencies can be lifesaving. Go to your dentist right away, before the problem becomes worse (and more expensive to treat).

The emergency room is not equipped to handle dental emergencies.

People who have been ignoring a troublesome tooth often wind up in the ER because of increased pain and swelling that no longer responds to over-the-counter pain medication. These patients are routinely given a prescription for Read the rest
