Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of your dental visit. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming major problems.
The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on your health. If you are a smoker or a heavy drinker, make sure you get regular oral cancer screenings when you visit us.
