Oral Exam and Oral Cancer Screening
During your appointment, Dr. Kooner will complete a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums and other oral tissues. Along with a visual exam, we will also update digital x-rays as needed to help in your diagnosis. Tooth decay and gum disease can be prevented with good oral hygiene, professional cleanings and regular exams. With regular exams, we can catch minor problems before they develop into major issues. An oral cancer screening is also completed during regular exams. Screenings are important because most oral cancer lesions can be successfully treated if detected early.
