Costa Mesa Dentists For Oral Cancer Screening
Over 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral and throat cancers each year, and as with any type of cancer, the chance of recovery relies in part upon how early the cancer was first detected. As part of your general dental exam and dental cleaning, our Costa Mesa dentists perform a thorough screening for signs of oral cancer. When you visit our dental office, our dentist will perform a visual inspection of your mouth and a physical examination of your jaw and neck. Should any warning signs of cancer present themselves, we will then recommend that you promptly schedule an appointment with your primary physician. By helping to facilitate early cancer detection, our dentists and dental team at OC Healthy Smiles work toward more than just the health of your teeth and gums!
