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.
At each Hygiene visit an oral cancer screening will be performed by our hygienist. Our dentists will perform one during routine and new patient examinations.
The oral cancer screening can be assisted 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 such as smoking and drinking can have a great impact on your oral health. If you are a smoker or consume alcohol make sure to get regular checkups when visiting Conifer Dental Group.
