Going to the dentist is the best way to ensure that your teeth are in the best oral shape and to ensure that cavities and gum hygiene are kept in check.  But did you know that visiting your dentist could also be the visit that you need to detect oral cancer?

Dentists, like Dr. Jose Valenzuela, can check for lumps, irregular tissue changes in the oral cavity, and find any discolored tissues.  During an oral cancer screening, your dentist can search for things that you never knew existed.  These screenings can prevent oral cancer from spreading further, and help patients to get further medical treatments.

Dr. Jose Valenzuela knows the importance of preventative screenings, and works with his patients to ensure that their oral health is always in the best of hands.  Oral cancer prevention is essential because this cancer can spread quickly, is rarely noticed by patients, and be deadly if not caught in its early stages. 

Visiting your dentist on a regular basis and receiving these oral cancer screenings are imperative to keeping your oral and general health at their best.

If you would like to learn more about oral cancer, including preventative methods and oral care tips, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Jose Valenzuela.  Dr. Valenzuela will answer all of your questions about oral cancer and can help guide you to understanding your oral health.
