Our office performs a thorough oral cancer screening at every routine cleaning appointment.
It can affect any area of the oral cavity including the lips, mucosa, cheek lining, tongue, and the hard or soft palate. Oral cancer most often occurs in those who use tobacco in any form. Alcohol use combined with smoking greatly increases risk of oral cancer. Prolonged sun exposure increases the risk of lip cancer
Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions.
Dr. Shah and his team at Preston Smiles in Dallas will help to keep your mouth healthy!
