Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient.Dr. Theis  has been doing these for every patient for the past 25 years. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem. With a history of oral cancer in his immediate family , Dr. Theis  prides himself on this aspect of your initial visit.

The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions. If an abnormality  exists, futher study will be involved, to assure a complete and proper diagnosis.

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, you may be at a higher risk. If you have any questions please call our office .
