It’s April and that means it’s also Oral Cancer Awareness Month. We’re recognizing this month by showing you how to do a self-check for oral cancer at home. This video made by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) walks you through what to look for in and around your mouth. 

Early detection is essential to fighting this disease! Make sure you also have your next cleaning and exam scheduled. We’ll do a thorough examination of your mouth for any oral health issues like cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. If we can spot a problem when it’s small, it makes it much easier to treat. 

Make sure your loved ones have their cleaning and exam scheduled and know how to do a self-check for oral cancer too! Encourage them to call Aberdeen Smiles at 605-277-9049 to request an appointment or schedule online.
