Oral Cancer Screenings- from the American Dental Association

(Last Updated On: March 26, 2021)

The foundation of sound dental care is routine cleaning and maintenance. However, your routine hygiene visits are not only for cleaning.
These visits include a thorough examination and include an oral cancer screening, gum disease and decay evaluation as well as restorative evaluation. Your hygienist is a highly trained professional educated in the latest technologies and dental treatments available.
Your oral health and hygiene can also affect your overall health. Poor oral health resulting in high levels of oral bacteria has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other serious medical conditions.
At Longwood Dental Group, our hygiene team is among the most highly skilled and experienced in the area. Not only do they provide the highest standard in quality care, but they also provide continual updated education for their patients.
