Remain In Peak Oral Health With Oral Cancer Checks
We understand the importance of protecting our patient’s oral health at Westmoreland Family Dentistry in Oviedo. We’re proud to offer comprehensive oral cancer checks as part of our routine dental exams. Oral cancer screenings are essential for detecting abnormalities early, allowing prompt and effective treatment.
How are oral cancer checks performed?
During an oral cancer screening, we will carefully examine your lips, cheeks, the floor of the mouth, tongue, and other areas of the mouth for any suspicious sores or lesions. We may also use high-tech digital imaging to better look at hard-to-reach areas that can go unnoticed by the naked eye. We may recommend further testing if we notice anything abnormal or suspicious during the screening.
Why are oral cancer checks necessary?
Catching oral cancer in its early stages can make a big difference in treatment and recovery. Early detection can help treat your condition promptly, improving the diagnosis and outcome. All patients must undergo regular oral cancer screenings, even if they don't smoke or drink alcohol.
Who should have an oral cancer screening?
Anyone over the age of 18 should have regular oral cancer screenings. Since early detection is critical, it's also essential for patients to be aware of any changes that may be occurring in their mouths. If you notice something out of place, such as swelling, bleeding, lumps, bumps, or sores that won’t heal, don't hesitate to contact Westmoreland Family Dentistry for an oral cancer check.
