Your health is always Southern Smile’s top priority. During dental checkups, our team will keep a watch out for a problem even more dangerous than cavities and gum disease: oral cancer.
Every year, over 50,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with it, with up to 25% of instances occurring in young, healthy people who do not engage in usual risky behaviors like cigarette use or excessive alcohol intake.
Early detection is critical for successful treatment, although the early signs might be difficult to spot. Fortunately, nothing escapes the keen eyes of our dentists. If they notice any precancerous or cancerous tissues in your mouth, we can get you the necessary treatment immediately.
