Smiles By Design provides oral cancer screenings for Oral cancer screenings for patients in Northeast Wisconsin and we believe they are a very important part of the dental visit. The key to minimizing the effects of any cancer is to catch it early. Because of our technology and experience, we are able to pinpoint the areas for concern early on in the life of the potential cancerous spot. This is extremely important for treatment to begin before issues become irreversible.
We often perform an oral cancer screening with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to see issues that can’t always be seen and detected by the human eye.
Make sure to regularly get an oral cancer screening if you are a frequent smoker, heavy drinker, or if you use smokeless tobacco. However, due to the unpredictability of cancerous cells, we recommend that you get checked regardless of your daily habits.
