At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we recommend that our patients come in twice a year for a dental exam and cleaning. But our checkups are about more than just healthy teeth and gums. We also provide screenings for oral cancer.
Oral cancer claims almost 10,000 lives every year in the United States. In an oral cancer screening, we’ll inspect the entire oral cavity: the lips, inside the mouth, and all the way to the back of the throat. The screening will give you peace of mind that there are no apparent problems, or if there are, get you started on the early treatment that might just save your life.
Oral cancer screenings are not diagnostic. Even if we don’t see anything abnormal during the exam, we may repeat the screening in a future appointment. This is especially important for patients who use tobacco, drinks alcohol, or has other behaviors that raise the risk of oral cancer.
At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we work to raise awareness of oral cancer. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry, are a mercury-free practice, and provide sedation dentistry to those coping with dental anxiety.
