Oral Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer is not a rare disease and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 45,780 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer.
Dr. Chandler uses an oral cancer screening device, OralID, in efforts to discover oral cancers in their earliest stages. Currently, 63% of oral cancers are found in late stages, resulting in a a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%. Those interested in receiving an oral cancer screening or learning more about our advanced technology implemented at our office can please call 801-465-1810 and ask about our OrallD screenings.
Gum recession is a common oral health concern for millions, and the traditional treatment is quite invasive, involving sutures, cuts and grafts. Fortunately, modern medicine has come up with an excellent alternative, and Dr. Chandler now performs this procedure in his Payson dental office.
