Oral cancer screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues before they become a major, irreversible problem.
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 naked 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, heavy drinker, or drug user, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit Dr. Nguyen.
Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure the are is completely spotless. If this are is not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria residing in the tartar and plaque. It is very important to have Dr. Nguyen check this area if you have bleeding during brushing.
