Oral Cancer Screening

At Premier Dentistry, we prioritize your overall oral health, which is why we include an oral cancer screening as a vital part of our dental care services. Early detection of oral cancer can significantly increase the chances of successful treatment, making these screenings an essential component of your dental health regimen.

The Critical Role of Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are quick, noninvasive examinations aimed at identifying early signs of oral cancer. These screenings are particularly important because they can detect cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions that may not yet be causing any noticeable symptoms. Regular screenings are recommended for:

  • Early detection of mouth, tongue and throat cancers.
  • Identifying abnormal tissue changes or lesions in the oral cavity.
  • Ensuring timely intervention and treatment if needed.

By incorporating oral cancer screenings into routine dental visits, we can help safeguard your health.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

During your visit to our office, an oral cancer screening typically involves:

  • A visual examination of your mouth, face, neck and lips for any signs of cancer.
  • A physical examination to feel for any lumps or irregular tissue changes in your neck, head, face and oral cavity.
  • Use of special tools or dyes if necessary to highlight abnormal cells or tissues.
  • A gentle, respectful approach, ensuring your comfort throughout the screening.

The process is quick, painless and can be a lifesaver.

Benefits of Regular Oral Cancer Screenings
