Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of your dental visit with Dr. Falona Glenn and Dr Gerald Glenn. With the proper technology we can pinpoint the start of potential problems much earlier in its evolution. Not all problems are reversible. However, you have a much better chance to reverse issues before the problem has had time to progress if we can catch the issue early on.
The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can’t always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
