Get Screened for Oral Cancer this April in Sopris Smiles

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, and there's no better time to get screened for oral cancer. At Sopris Smiles, we make oral cancer screening an integral part of every hygiene appointment for all our patients.

Oral cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer when it goes undetected and untreated in its early stages. However, with early discovery through a professional oral cancer screening, survival rates dramatically improve.

At Sopris Smiles, we take oral cancer screenings so seriously. Our entire clinical team, including our hygienists, dentist, and dental assistants, is highly trained in performing comprehensive oral cancer exams.

During your routine cleaning appointments, your hygienist will conduct a visual and physical inspection, checking your whole mouth, face, and neck area for any abnormalities or potential signs of oral cancer. This painless screening takes just a few minutes but could end up saving your life.

Don't skip out on this crucial screening! Make sure to visit Sopris Smiles every six months for your professional cleanings and exams. Early detection is key when it comes to beating oral cancers.

If you're overdue for a cleaning and checkup or if you notice any unusual sores, lumps, or lesions anywhere in your mouth that don't heal within two weeks, call us right away. We'll get you in for an evaluation as soon as possible.

This April, take charge of your oral health during Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Our team prioritizes oral cancer screenings so you can have peace of mind. Contact us today to schedule your next appointment in Cherry Hills/Englewood!
