Oral Cancer Screenings

At your routine hygiene appointment, our dentist will perform an examination of your mouth during to screen for oral cancer. Some dentists may use additional tests to aid in identifying areas of abnormal cells in your mouth. The goal with oral cancer screening is to identify cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure.

During an oral exam, our dentist looks over the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or mouth sores.

Many people have abnormal sores in their mouths, with the great majority being noncancerous. An oral exam can't determine which sores are cancerous and which are not. But if the dentist finds an unusual sore, you may go through further testing to determine its cause. The only way to definitively determine whether you have oral cancer is to remove some abnormal cells and test them for cancer in a procedure called a biopsy.

We screen for Oral Cancer using Identafi.  Click here to read more about this early detection device.
