Your dentist, Dr. Healy, offers oral cancer screenings at Healy Dental Care to help you have the top-notch health you deserve. This treatment is provided during your six-month checkup and it can help you detect oral cancer at the early stages. There are many other reasons why you should consider getting an oral cancer screening. Those reasons are because it:
-Is easy: Your dentist won’t need to do anything but visually inspect the smile and mouth for signs of oral cancer, like red and white patches. If a sign is detected, a biopsy will be needed. But the exam itself is just an easy visual inspection of the mouth.
-Can save your life: When you get an oral cancer screening every six months along with your dental cleaning and exam, there is a higher chance of catching the cancer at the early stages. This can help you increase your chances of recovering.
-Is inexpensive: Most insurances cover preventive treatments. Because oral cancer screenings are preventive, they are free!
