ORAL CANCER SCREENING


Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.


During the oral cancer screenings, we will check the floor of the mouth and all surfaces of the tougue, a common area for oral cancer. We also check the lymphnodes below your jaw and around your neck for any irregularities.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
