The Importance of Oral Cancer Screening

Regular screenings are essential for early detection, which is crucial in improving treatment outcomes and increasing the chances of a full recovery.

Risk Factors for Oral Cancer

Certain factors may increase the risk of developing oral cancer. These include:

  • Tobacco use
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection
  • Sun exposure
  • Poor oral hygiene

What to Expect During an Oral Cancer Screening

An oral cancer screening is a quick and painless examination, typically performed during your routine dental checkup.

The process begins with a visual examination, where our dental professional will examine the inside of your mouth and look for abnormalities. They will also gently feel the tissues in your mouth and neck for swelling, enlarged lymph nodes, or other irregularities. Our office utilizes advanced technology to help detect subtle changes in the tissues that may not be visible to the naked eye.

If any areas of concern are detected during the screening, our team will discuss their findings with you, explain the next steps, and answer any questions you may have.
