Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk of some diseases, like heart disease and stroke. Some medical conditions, including life-threatening oral cancers and diseases, can be detected in their early stages during a routine oral exam.
Oral cancer affects more people nationwide than either cervical or skin (melanoma) cancer. Although most oral cancers are found in people who use tobacco and/or drink alcohol excessively, 25% of oral cancers occur in people who have no risk factors at all. Recent medical studies indicate the human papillomavirus disease (HPV) can be linked to oral cancer.
During regular dental checkups, Dr. Mahallati examines your mouth to ensure there are no symptoms of oral cancer. Two dental visits per year are recommended, but if you notice any unusual changes in your mouth, the team recommends you call the office to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
