Oral Cancer Screening

Arlington Tx Dentist | Oral Cancer ScreeningCancer is a leading cause of death. Oral cancer screenings can be performed within our dental office. Oral cancer is cancer of the mouth and is usually predicated by long-term use of alcohol and/or tobacco use over an extended time.  Poor oral hygiene can also contribute to oral cancer within the mouth. It is important to find signs of this cancer early on and take preventative measures against it.  Regular check-ups are a great time for Dr. Miller to perform an oral cancer screening to determine if you would have any signs or symptoms of cancer.  If anything unusual or suspicious is noted we can discuss this with you.  If necessary, a follow-up appointment or referral to another dental or medical specialist may be needed to evaluate your oral tissues.  Prevention and early diagnosis is key in diagnosing and treating oral cancer.
