Oral cancer is a dangerous disease that can take over your oral health and result in death if it’s not identified or treated in time. To help you save your smile and overall health, our Smiley Dental Houston team happily provides oral cancer screenings at our office. There are many reasons why you should take advantage of this treatment, and some of those reasons are:

· It is easy: An oral cancer screening is easier than you think. All the screening requires is an oral examination of your lips, gums, tongue, roof of the mouth, and throat. Your dentist will simply check for signs of oral cancer and will take additional steps if necessary. This process can be completed during your regular dental cleaning and exam.

· It can save your life: If you receive an oral cancer screening at each dental checkup, the chances of you catching the disease at the early stages of development increase, which can potentially save your life. The longer the disease has to develop, the harder it is to fight.

· It is inexpensive: An oral cancer screening is free if you receive one during your routine dental exam. The only time there will be a fee is if your dentist identifies the disease and requires additional treatment.

If you would like to increase your chances of surviving oral cancer, we encourage you to call 713.936.1923 and schedule an appointment with Dr. . Your dentist is more than happy to meet with you, examine your oral cavity, and give you the news on the health and condition of your smile. If necessary, he will also be happy to start treatment right away if he finds signs of the disease. We look forward to helping you!
