Oral Cancer Screenings

Why Do I Need An Oral Cancer Screening?

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for every patient. By regularly performing thorough oral cancer screenings, dentists can identify any abnormalities or changes in the mouth that could potentially indicate the presence of cancerous cells. With advances in modern technology, we can now identify the early stages of potential problems much sooner. This capability is crucial for treating issues before they develop into major, irreversible conditions.

Oral cancer screenings are often performed using an ultraviolet light or a similar device, which enables us to detect issues that are not visible to the naked eye under normal conditions. This is especially important because some oral health problems, such as early stages of oral cancer, may not show visible symptoms until it has progressed significantly.

Certain lifestyle choices can significantly affect the health of your oral tissues and overall mouth health. If you smoke or drink heavily, be sure to get regular screenings during your dental visits.
