On average, a little more than 54,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with oral cancer every year and just over 11,000 of those cases will be fatal. Because this disease can be difficult to identify, you should visit our dentist for an oral cancer screening in Portland, Oregon, any time you notice something out of the ordinary with the soft tissues of your mouth. A screening with Dr. Andrew Sype could save your smile and even your life. Call Plaza 125 Dental at (503) 760-3214 for your appointment.
