Early detection of oral cancer, a very serious disease, can be life-saving. With our focus on preventive dental care, we perform oral cancer screenings as part of our comprehensive exams. Certain lifestyle factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use, can increase the risk of developing oral cancer, but these are not exclusive. Anyone can develop the disease, which is why screening is crucial for ensuring your optimal oral health. We use visual and manual screening methods to detect abnormal tissues in the cheeks, tongue, gums, and other areas of the mouth.
