Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. 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 a major irreversible problem.

Oral cancer is often treatable when caught early on.  Dentists and dental hygienists are specifically trained to be able to visualize the difference between healthy tissue and potentially cancerous lesions.  Anything suspicisous may be referred to an oral surgeon or oral patholgist for further evaluation. 

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
