Oral Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer Screening is vital to your long term oral health. Traditionally, dentists have only checked patients’ mouths for abnormalities with the naked eye. Unfortunately, approximately 70% of the time oral cancer is not visible to the dental professional until it has reached an advanced stage. As with most serious diseases, early detection is the key to successful outcomes.
New screening technology available today assists Dr. Mullenaux in detecting abnormal tissue in the mouth before it is plainly obvious. This technology uses a special mouth wash and a diagnostic light to reveal abnormalities in soft tissue, resulting in early detection.
