Oral Cancer Screenings Can Help You Stay on the Ball

Posted .

Even if you feel like you are in perfect health, it never hurts to check for potential problems. One way our office team can help you stay healthy is to perform an oral cancer screening. Our goal is to detect any suspicious areas that may be present, so that you can get it taken care of.

Dr. Hockel or another one of our dentists will carefully examine your mouth and throat. This is part of your regular annual dental exam, so you can benefit from their continuous watch. If they notice anything out of the ordinary, they can help you get the treatment you need from there.

We would like to note that these screenings cannot produce an actual diagnosis. Any issues our dentists discover could be an indication of cancer, but they could also indicate a different issue. Nevertheless, our dentists can help you catch these problems early on and help you get the
treatment you need so you can enjoy a healthy life.

The earlier cancer is discovered, the easier it will be to treat. If you would like to receive regular cancer screenings, we invite you to come to our office in Walnut Creek, California. To schedule an appointment with us, please call (925) 934-3434. We look forward to serving you.
