April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. So it seems like a good time to remind you of the importance of oral cancer prevention. 

We encourage you to watch this short video, which presents seven ways to prevent oral cancer. One of them is visiting your dentist regularly for exams. Self screening at home is another of the tips offered, and is definitely a good idea. However, it is easier for your dentist to identify abnormalities in your mouth that may signal the presence of cancer. Like other kinds of cancer, early detection dramatically increases survival rates. 

We recommend visiting us every six months for a checkup in Cumming, GA. If you need to schedule one, call Inspiring Smiles at 770-738-4103 for an appointment or schedule online

If you notice any changes in how your mouth looks, call us and we’ll get you in ASAP for an exam.
