There are other potential causes for many of these signs of oral cancer.

We can also talk to you about lifestyle choices that reduce your risk of developing mouth cancer in the future.
Who Needs Oral Cancer Screening?
Everyone should receive a thorough oral cancer screening at least occasionally. If your family has a history of oral cancer or you use tobacco products, you should consider oral cancer screening an essential part of your overall health care. You may have other factors that increase your risk of developing cancer, and we’re always available to answer your questions and help you identify those risk factors.
The signs of cancer can occur quickly, and prompt medical attention is essential. We provide fast appointments for all members of the community who want to check for signs of oral cancer.

What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is a dental field that covers a variety of procedures that fall beyond the standard services at a family dentist office. These procedures are performed on the gums, teeth and other tissues in the mouth in order to improve oral health, repair damage or prevent disease.
Some of the most common oral surgery procedures include:
- Removal of impacted wisdom teeth
- Dental implants
- Root canal
- Periodontal treatments
- Reconstruction treatments
While many dental offices will refer patients to a local surgeon, Rosary Dental has an experienced oral surgeon working in-house. That gives our patients immediate access to quality surgical services with less wait time. Come in and see what we can do for your biggest dental challenges.
What to Expect from Oral Surgery in Houston, TX 77036
Try to remain calm when you hear the word “surgery” from your dentist. Many of the procedures performed by a dental surgeon require limited pain and discomfort. In many cases, you can fully recover within a few days, returning quickly to work and other daily activities.
Our dental team will explain the surgery that you need in detail. We will answer your questions and inform you about post-operative care expectations so that you’re prepared for every aspect of the surgery. If there are other treatment options that could help you prevent surgery, we will present those options and help you make an informed decision that suits your dental needs, budget, and personal concerns.
We maintain a comfortable environment in each of our offices because we want to put you at ease when arriving for surgery or other types of dental work. If you want to explore the options of sedation and comfort dentistry, contact us to discuss the many ways we can help ease your anxiety.
