Early diagnosis is the single most effective way of treating and preventing cancer.
During routine examinations and cleanings at Foothills Family Dentistry, we perform oral cancer screenings on our patients. If tissue appears abnormal or looks conspicuously different, it may be an indicator for the development of cancerous tissues.
By detecting and diagnosing cancer early, we can treat it before it has an opportunity to spread throughout the mouth. Though a simple procedure, oral cancer screening has the potential to save your life, and we do not underestimate its importance.
