Rockville, MD (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Periodontal patients in and around the greater Rockville, MD and Washington, D.C. areas who are interested in oral cancer screening services can now look to Dr. Steven N. Rice of the Advanced Laser Gum Surgery Institute of Washington to provide a comprehensive screening visit. Early signs of cancers of the mouth can be found by a trained dental professional while receiving other dental care in Rockville, MD and, as with a cancer located anywhere else in the body, early detection is the best key to long-term success and survival.
During an oral cancer screening, Dr. Rice can look for signs of abnormal cells that may signify the existence of cysts, tumors, cancerous lesions or pre-cancerous lesions. If needed, a biopsy can be taken to further investigate any suspicious areas or tissues. Before undergoing treatments for other dental care in Rockville, MD, the ability to ensure that the gums and overall oral cavity are healthy enough to receive care is important and can help prevent complications or missed problems down the road.
