“There’s no symptom of oral cancer per se. It could be a lesion. It could be a trauma from a coffee burn or you biting into your cheek. It could be ill-fitting dentures, hoarsens of the throat or voice, [even] bad breath. As a result, it often gets overlooked or misdiagnosed. So when they realize it’s cancer, more often than not, 2 out of 3 times, they’re catching it at a late stage, stage 3 or 4.”
Matthew Kim is the founder, chair, and CEO of Vigilant Biosciences. He has the right idea about oral cancer detection and works towards improving this standard of care, especially giving it attention during April, oral cancer awareness month. Your Ridgefield dentist, either Dr. Dana C. Jones or Dr. Josephine A. Franzese, also care about making oral cancer screenings more innovative, effective, and convenient during each dental visit.

All too often, people underestimate the importance of dental health for children. However, oral health is not just important for a child’s ability to eat and speak correctly, but also sets the foundation for their dental health as an adult. Unfortunately, only 83% of children see their dentist twice a year. In addition, 75% of children do not brush their teeth properly. If the lack of commitment to dental health is not reversed, these children are more likely to have significant oral health complications as an adult. As your pediatric dentist in Ridgefield, CT, we want to ensure your child has the right foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. There are many simply ways you can promote your child’s dental health.
