Gum Evaluation

Gum evaluations, also called oral cancer screenings, are an essential component of preventive dental care, aiming to detect potential issues in their early stages. They are recommended for individuals of all ages, particularly if there are risk factors present. These include a history of tobacco or alcohol use, persistent oral sores, or a family history of oral cancer. Regular screenings become even more crucial as individuals age, ensuring timely detection and intervention.

During an oral cancer screening, our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, checking for any abnormalities, discolorations or unusual lumps. This noninvasive procedure is quick and painless, providing immediate peace of mind.

The primary advantage of oral cancer screenings lies in early detection. Identifying potential issues in their initial stages significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and minimizes the impact on your overall health. Regular screenings also promote a proactive approach to oral care, fostering a culture of preventive dentistry that prioritizes long-term wellbeing. Luckily, this can quickly be done during your regular checkup with Dr. Zan Pervaiz at Heritage Dental Arts.
