Importance Of Receiving An Oral Cancer Screening

With the arrival of the new year, it is important to reflect on the state of your oral health. If it has been some time since your last visit for an oral hygiene examination and cleaning, we recommend scheduling your next appointment as soon as possible. Not only do we thoroughly clean the teeth, remove any lingering plaque, and look for signs of decay, but we also check for other conditions such as gum disease and oral cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that over 54,000 people have been diagnosed with oral or throat cancer in 2022.
