Did you know you can get an oral cancer screening during your six-month checkup? Well, it’s true. This treatment is very beneficial for you, your smile and your entire health. Our dentist, Dr. Haws, is happy to provide this treatment to keep you healthy. There are many reasons why you should get an oral cancer screening. Those reasons are because it:
-Is easy: All your dentist will do is visually inspect the smile and oral tissues for signs of oral cancer, like red or white patches. This can be done during your regular exam. Sometimes your dentist checks for signs without you even knowing!
-Can save your life: This is because the screening will typically be provided every six months. This makes it possible to catch oral cancer at the early stages. When it’s caught early, there is a better chance at fully recovering.
-Is inexpensive: The screening is included in your six-month checkup. And, because it’s a preventative treatment, insurances cover it. In other words, the oral cancer screening is free!
