Oral Cancer Screening, Protection, Prevention

We routinely look for oral cancer during dental exams.

We can now painlessly prevent a disease that kills as many Americans as melanoma, twice as many as cervical cancer, and is rising among women, young people, and non-smokers. Recent studies have also shown a link between HPV and an increase in oral cancer.

There is a painless, non-invasive method of testing that can easily identify whether a spot is cancerous or not.

First, we start with our routine examination. If you, your hygienist, or the dentist notice any tiny white or red spots, we use a small swab-like brush to collect a sample for computer-assisted laboratory analysis.

If you notice any tiny white or red spots in your mouth, give us a call and schedule an appointment. Remember, this is a simple, painless test that can catch cancer long before it has a chance to start. There are also many other things that can cause spots in your mouth. The dentist can usually tell if you need the test or not.
