At every regular checkup, our dentist will carefully examine your mouth. In addition to checking the health of your teeth and gums, we believe it is essential to provide an oral cancer screening during these visits.
The goal of an oral cancer screening is to detect oral cancer or any precancerous lesions when they are easiest to remove and most likely to be cured. Some factors that can increase the risk of oral cancer include tobacco use of any kind, heavy alcohol use, previous oral cancer and a history of significant sun exposure.
At Town Center Dental, we are dedicated to the health of our patients. To make an appointment with our experienced team, call us today at (512) 668-9468.
