Oral cancer screening

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 before they advance to a major irreversible problem.

The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view problems that cannot always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.

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