Oral Cancer Screenings
It’s vital to detect oral, or mouth, cancer as early as possible in order to provide the best long-term outcome. Sores, white spots, red rashes, bumps, burns, ulcers and rough patches inside your mouth can be relatively common, or they can potentially be signs of a more serious problem. We will examine you to determine whether these spots are normal or are a greater cause for concern.
Cancer screening exam consists of a visual exam with dental loups (magnification) and palpating the border of your jaw and chin and neck and also checking your tongue and palate and oral mucosa under fluorescent light using state of the art screening technology for pre-malignant evaluation.
