Oral Cancer Screening
The Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that over 43,250 cases of cancer will be diagnosed each year in the United States and chances of survival are dramatically increased through early detection. Too many cases go undetected for an extended period of time, dramatically increasing the chances of complications or even death. For this reason, Gwinnett Family Dental Care is proud to offer thorough oral cancer screening as part of our comprehensive general dentistry offerings.
Strides in medical and dental technology make it easier than ever to identify oral cancer in its earliest stages, which in turn makes cancer much more responsive to intervention and treatment. The health and wellbeing of our patients is the center of everything we do at Gwinnett Family Dental Care, so we make oral cancer screening a priority.
Mouth Cancer Tests
It is recommended by the American Dental Association that everyone receives twice-annual dental checkups. While this is one of the best and most effective ways of maintaining the health and beauty of your smile, it also allows your dentist to spot any early warning signs of oral cancer before the disease can further develop.
Routine dental checkups are about more than just cleaning and checking for cavities. When you are a patient at Gwinnett Family Dental Care, your checkups are also a first line of defense against oral cancer.
If you are concerned about oral cancer or not sure if you’ve been screened recently, contact us today to schedule a consultation. We’ll schedule a comprehensive dental exam which includes mouth cancer tests, along with an inspection of your teeth, their function and the health of your smile. Our experts are standing by, eager to help protect your health and wellbeing by providing the very best dental care throughout the Lawrenceville region.
