What is an Oral Cancer Screening?
Oral cancer screenings are performed during a regularly scheduled dental checkup. We perform a quick, visual examination of your mouth and teeth to identify precancerous signs and symptoms that could be oral cancer. Your safety and comfort are of utmost importance throughout the exam.
We take careful examination of your mouth and teeth and look for the most common signs of oral cancer such as:
- Bleeding sores
- Numb or tender mouth
- Trouble swallowing or chewing
