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 identify the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important to be able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.
The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that cannot always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this section with special instruments to ensure that it is completely spotless. If this area is not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria that resides in the tartar and plaque. It's very important to have your dentist check this if you have bleeding during brushing.
