Healthy Mouth Checkup
If oral cancer is undiagnosed and develops into an advanced state, one could lose the tongue and jaw so regular screenings and detection are critical.
As a comprehensive dental practice, Dr. Powless offers routine oral cancer screening to you as a patient. Because, as dentists, they are the only medical professionals in a position to evaluate routinely and detect abnormalities early. The doctors are dedicated to providing this potentially life-saving procedure for you.
Our office is not only dedicated to your smile, but we’re also dedicated to your overall wellness. We take a wellness approach to your dental care, which includes an oral cancer screening as a part of your regular exam. Like many kinds of cancer, oral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early.
We have the skills and tools to ensure that early signs and symptoms of oral cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are identified. While these symptoms may be caused by other, less serious problems, it is very important to visit our office to rule out the possibility of oral cancer.
