Oral Cancer Screenings

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.

Our doctors always perform a thorough visual oral cancer screening at the end of your exam when you come in for your semi annual checkups, taking a close look at all your tissues and even under your tongue. We look for any abnormalities, lumps, bumps, color changes, ulcerations, or lesions that could indicate a problem that needs to be addressed at the oral surgeon.

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.
