Remember Your Checkup

We remember all of those important dates like birthdays and anniversaries, changing oil in the car, hair appointments, and paying taxes. But one of our most important annual events, our dental recare visit, is often forgotten, postponed, or cancelled! While you might think, “It’s just a checkup,” your recare appointment helps to monitor and maintain your good health.

Something as simple as the early detection of a cavity will save you money down the road, but the benefits do not stop there. Beyond brightening your smile and removal of dental tartar with a thorough cleaning, we evaluate the health of your gums (which has been linked to diabetes, stroke, premature birth, heart disease, and cancer) and screen for serious threats like oral cancer. Keeping tabs on your oral health is as important as your annual physical. Please check your calendar for your next appointment, and if you haven’t got one booked – call us today!

Abbotsford Dentist – 1st Annual Dentistry from the Heart

We want to thank all of the patients who attended but give a special thanks to our patients who choose to trust us with their dental care each and every day.

Another big “Thank You” to Mayor Bruce Banman for his support along with our great sponsors Abbotsford Salvation Army, Gourmet Gallery Coffee Shop, Rendezvous Restaurant, Gian’s Indian Cuisine, Patterson Dental and Voco!

Abbotsford Dentist Clayburn Dental is proud to be hosting the 2nd ANNUAL COMMUNITY ORAL CANCER SCREENING INITIATIVE – In Support of An Evening to Conquer Oral Cancer and BC Cancer Foundation.

Early Detection Saves Lives

In honour of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, CLAYBURN DENTAL will be offering free oral cancer screenings to the community on SUNDAY APRIL 13TH from 10am to 2pm at 400 – 3033 Immel St. in Abbotsford, BC. In addition Clayburn Dental has been offering free oral cancer screenings to their patients April 1st-14th and donating $2.00 per screening performed to BC Cancer Foundation in support of An Evening to Conquer Oral Cancer. Their goal is to raise $2,000 through these screenings.

Oral cancer is not a rare disease. Globally, over 300,000 new cases are identified each year. More than 500 British Columbians will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless, and quick screening.

Who should get screened?

Every adult. Oral cancer can often be caught early, even as a pre-cancer. With early detection, survival rates are high and the side effects are from treatment are at their lowest. Like other screenings you engage in such as cervical, skin, prostate, colon and breast examinations, oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages. Make them part of your annual health check-ups.

What are the risk factors?

There are two distinct pathways by which most people come to oral cancer. One is through the use of tobacco and alcohol, a long term historic problem and cause, and the other is through exposure to the HPV16 virus (human papilloma virus version 16and the same one, which is responsible for the vast majority of cervical cancers in women. The quickest growing segment of the oral cancer population are young, healthy, non-smokers due to the connection to this virus.

Early Indicators:

  • Red and/or white discolouration of the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Any sore which does not heal within 14 days.
  • Hoarseness which lasts for a prolonged period of time.
  • A sensation that something is stuck in you throat.
  • Difficulty in moving the jaw or tongue.
  • Ear pain which occurs on one side only.
  • A sore under a denture, which even after adjustment of the denture, still does not heal.
  • A lump or thickening which develops in the mouth or on the neck.

An oral cancer screening should be conducted every year, so take advantage of this free offer and get screened today. Call Clayburn Dental at 604-852-8487 for more info on the complimentary screening.
