Receive a Free Oral Cancer Screening at Your Next Teeth Cleaning Appointment, Anchorage, Alaska

Your dental health influences your overall health and well-being, and scheduling an oral cancer screening is a preventative way to keep you healthy. Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, AK, is providing a complimentary oral cancer screening if you have already booked your next teeth cleaning or dental screening appointment. The team of dentists at Family First Dentistry explains why an oral cancer screening is so important and why you should take advantage of this service at your next appointment.

Oral health goes beyond just teeth cleaning, and screenings are an important part of your dental care. You may not be able to see or detect any abnormalities in your mouth, but your dentist or hygienist is trained to look for specific signs and symptoms. They will recognize any lesions, sores, lumps, or bumps before you’re able to see or feel them — and before they become painful or cancerous. Many people believe if they are not smokers or do not use alcohol that they won’t be affected by oral cancer. However, these issues can affect anyone, and receiving regular screenings will help identify and monitor any problems.

Screening can lead to early detection, which may mean any cancer will be easier to treat. It also means that if your dentist or hygienist finds an issue, they can recommend the most effective treatment plan.

Early detection is essential in finding and treating oral cancers. The earlier the problem is detected, the less chance it has to spread and the better chance you have of beating the disease.
