April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, a whole month dedicated to educating the public about oral cancer. Oral cancer is known as the silent killer because it often goes undiagnosed and undetected until it has spread to other areas of the body or reached the late stages of the disease. As a result, the long term prognosis for those with the cancers isn’t very positive. At Bedford Dentistry, we support Oral Cancer Awareness Month by bringing you the facts about your risk factors and how you can perform an oral cancer self-check to catch cancer early.

When you have missing teeth, it’s not uncommon to feel self-conscious. Dentures help with how you feel about your smile, while offering the ability to eat and speak. However, dentures don’t look or feel natural. As a result, there’s often a lot of discomfort from poorly fitting dentures, and they can really be a hassle to clean. Thankfully, dental implants give you an alternative solution to traditional dentures. Implants give you comfortable, permanent teeth that look and function just as natural teeth. We are proud to offer a number of implant options to help restore your smile.

Because this anxiety is a huge barrier to preventive care, people sink into the harmful cycle of only visiting the dentist when they’re already experiencing pain. But by then, the problem is often difficult to fix with conservative treatment — and more drastic measures must be taken.
