Greenville, NC (PRWEB) April 12, 2017
Drs. Robert Capps, Mark Bowman, Jamison Padgett and John Hoggard recognize Oral Cancer Awareness Month by accepting new patients for leading oral cancer screenings and teaching patients their value. Oral cancers are very prevalent in the United States, and it is important for Greenville patients with a family history of the disease, and those without, to be screened regularly by an experienced dentist in Greenville, NC.
Oral cancers are very common among adults in the United States. The National Cancer Society estimates that about 49,670 people in 2017 will develop oropharyngeal or oral cavity cancer, while an estimated 9,700 people will die from these diseases. Men are more likely to develop oral cancers than women, and the chance of developing oral cancers increases among white women and men who are infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Drs. Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Hoggard are respected dentists in Greenville, NC, who seek to raise awareness of the prevalence of oral cancer in the United States and encourage patients to receive regular screenings.
In addition to screening patients to detect the presence of oral cancers, Drs. Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Hoggard also provide a variety of general, cosmetic and family dentistry treatments designed to improve oral health and reduce the risk of disease. These services include dental implants, laser gum disease treatment and orthodontics. The doctors also use CEREC® technology to provide same-day crowns to eliminate the need for temporary crowns and give patients permanent, natural-looking crowns in a single office visit. CEREC crowns eliminate the need for messy impressions and deliver rapid, long-lasting results.
Drs. Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Hoggard are experienced dentists in Greenville, NC, who know how prevalent oral cancer is in the United States. In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, they urge patients to receive regular screenings for oral and oropharyngeal cancer.
