Oral Cancer Screenings

The purpose of an oral cancer screening is to examine the mouth for signs of cancer and precancerous lesions, such as lumps or spots, in all areas of the mouth. An oral cancer screening can take just a few minutes, and can be done along with a regular dental exam.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Screening

It’s important to let us know of your medical history before a cancer screening, especially if there is a history of oral cancer in your family. There are certain factors that may increase your risk of oral cancer, including:

  • Tobacco Use
    • Cigarettes
    • Chewing Tobacco
    • Cigars
    • Snuff
    • All other tobacco uses
  • Heavy Use of Alcohol
  • Prolonged Sun Exposure
  • Previous History of Oral Cancer

A simple oral cancer screening can provide you with peace of mind, not just for your dental health, but for your overall medical health. If you would like to learn more about oral cancer screening, our team is here to help!
