The Importance of Oral Cancer Awareness in Clearwater, FL Area

Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates of Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, work with patients to help them recognize the importance of oral cancer awareness. A diagnosis of oral cancer can be scary, but many patients can overcome this cancer and reach remission early detection and treatment. However, detection in the earliest stages requires patients to visit their dentist regularly for oral cancer screenings.

Why are oral cancer screenings important?

Our team at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry works routinely with patients who are not consistent in visiting the dentist every six months, as encouraged by the American Dental Association. In addition to helping patients prevent and reduce their risk of dental problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay, routine dental visits also include oral cancer screenings. When oral cancer is caught in the earliest stages, the outcome is typically beneficial for patients. Oral cancer screenings are done in just minutes right in the dental chair, allowing the dentist to look for common signs, including:

  • Red or white patches present in the mouth
  • Stubborn sores on the lips or mouth that don’t heal
  • Difficult or painful swallowing
  • Lumps or growths in the mouth or throat
  • Mouth pain and discomfort

Call Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry of Clearwater, Florida, today to schedule your oral cancer screening. The importance of oral cancer awareness should not be overlooked. 

Patients in the community are urged to call 727-888-6523 to request an oral cancer screening with Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates. With the help of our team, you can catch oral cancer early and get treatment before the situation progresses further. Our facility is conveniently located at 1825 Sunset Point Road and accepts new patients.
