The key to successful treating oral cancer is to diagnose it early. As part of your comprehensive periodontal evaluation, Dr. Peter Warshawsky and Dr. Eric Driver will perform an oral cancer screening to examine your mouth for abnormal tissues and detect oral cancer in the earliest stage of development. If cancerous lesions are detected, our periodontists can provide you with the treatments you need to restore and maintain your oral health.
