You know that you are supposed to visit your dentist in Rocky River twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Unfortunately, you may be among the 36% of adults who did not schedule an appointment last year. These routine visits are important for more than just keeping your teeth and gums healthy. They are also vital for oral cancer screenings, which allow you to detect the disease early. With more than 9,700 deaths per year from oral cancer, it is more important than ever before for you to maintain your semi-annual appointments.

You know that tooth decay and gum disease are common threats to your dental health, but there is a larger threat you need to be concerned about as well—oral cancer. Although it is not widely discussed, more than 49,000 new cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed this year. Due to the lack of education and awareness, the month of April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, which strives to bring attention to the risks of oral cancer and the need for preventive screenings. As your dentist in Rocky River, Dr. William Eick supports the mission to promote education about the cancer while also offering necessary screenings at your preventive appointments.
