April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. There’s no better time to learn how to do an oral cancer self-exam! Like other kinds of cancer, finding oral cancer in its earliest stages is the key to long-term survival.
Fortunately, performing a self-exam is quite simple! Watch this video to learn how.
Still, many instances of oral cancer are discovered during dental exams. That’s because dentists like those at Downtown Denver Dental know the signs and look for them during every exam. It’s easy for them to see the entire area of your mouth than it is for you when you are looking at home. If any of our dentists see signs that concern them, they will recommend you have a biopsy.
In addition to oral cancer, our dentists look for cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues that may need treatment. It’s easier and less costly to treat these problems in their earliest stages. Because of this, we recommend visiting us every six months for an exam.
