Oral Cancer Screenings

Did you know that oral cancer accounts for over 53,000 cases annually in the U.S.? Early detection is key, and oral cancer screenings play an important role in identifying irregularities before they advance.  

What Are Oral Cancer Screenings?

Oral cancer screenings are preventive examinations designed to identify signs of oral cancer in its early stages. These screenings are an essential component of maintaining comprehensive oral health.

What Are the Benefits of Oral Cancer Screenings?

Early detection through oral cancer screenings allows for timely intervention, significantly improving treatment outcomes. These screenings also include an assessment of individual risk factors, offering personalized guidance. Beyond the medical benefits, regular screenings provide peace of mind, reassuring you about oral health and contributing to overall well-being.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

  • Visual Inspection: A thorough examination of the mouth, lips, tongue, and surrounding tissues.
  • Manual Palpation: Gently feeling for lumps or abnormalities in the oral cavity.
  • Advanced Technology: Additional tools such as a handheld device or an intraoral camera may be used for a more detailed assessment.

How Often Do I Have to Schedule an Oral Cancer Screening?

The frequency of screenings depends on individual risk factors. Generally, an annual screening is recommended, but high-risk individuals such as smokers, those over 45, heavy alcohol consumers and people with family history of oral cancer may require more frequent examinations.
