If you want a strong and successful oral health for a lifetime, our Christiansburg Dental team recommends the occasional oral cancer screening. Oral cancer is a dangerous disease that can destroy your smile and your entire health if you let it. However, it can be caught at the early stages of development if you receive a screening every so often. There are many reasons why you should consider getting an oral cancer screening, including:
It is easy- Oral cancer screenings are simple and easy. In fact, they are so easy that they can be performed during your regular dental exam. All your dentist needs to do is check your mouth for oral cancer signs. The areas they will check are the lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, roof of the mouth, and sometimes the throat.
It can save your life- If you get a screening every time you come in for a dental exam, your chances of identifying the disease early increases. This can save your life because you’ll be able to treat the disease before it takes control of your body.
It is inexpensive- An oral cancer screening is free if you receive one during your routine dental exam. The only time there will be a fee is if your dentist identifies the disease and requires additional treatment.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of our oral cancer screening treatment, we recommend calling 540-257-6995 and scheduling an appointment with Dr. Dr. Miller Lewis and Dr. David Kelly at your earliest convenience. The sooner you receive the screening, the sooner you will know the condition of your smile. We look forward to your call!
