Regular Visits and the Detection of Oral Cancer Symptoms
Practicing good oral hygiene is only the first step in keeping a healthy smile. It is important to see Dr. Craig Steichen for regular check-ups to effectively remove plaque and tartar with professional cleanings. Decay is caught at routine exams before cavities can get bigger and turn into larger and more expensive procedures. Dr. Steichen also provides screenings to detect oral cancer symptoms in the soft tissues of your mouth and catch oral cancer in its earliest stages. We rely on Identafi®3000 technology when conducting oral cancer screenings, which utilizes light fluorescence and reflection on soft tissues to detect abnormalities within the mouth.
