April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Always April is a national partnership of oral surgery practices that aims to bring oral cancer awareness into a year-round discussion.
At 7x7 Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Specialists, we look for signs of oral cancer during every patient exam. The earlier oral cancer is detected and treated, the better the outcome. Schedule your free oral cancer screening today!
There is no need to do anything to prepare for a standard oral cancer screening. During the screening, an oral care specialist will look over the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or mouth sores. They will also feel the tissues in your mouth to check for lumps or other abnormalities, and may examine your throat and neck for lumps.
Watch this video from our national Always April partners to learn more about oral cancer awareness and the importance of early detection and screenings.
