Since April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, we are recognizing the importance of getting yourself checked for oral cancer. When you visit us for your regular checkup, not only will we clean your teeth but we’ll also examine your mouth for oral cancer, gum disease, and other oral health issues. 

We’re also sharing a video that walks you through how to perform a quick self-check for oral cancer on your own. It’s very simple to do in the bathroom as part of your oral hygiene routine. It’s important to look for signs when they are small, because the disease is easier to treat. Plus, your recovery time is far better at an early stage. 

Make sure your loved ones have their next checkup scheduled as well. Encourage them to call Houston Uptown Dentists at 832-463-1021 for an appointment in Houston, TX, or schedule online.
