At Dentistry For You, we prioritize preventative care for our patients. That means that we want to take as many measures as possible to ensure your oral health is maintained and improved. Part of the preventative care that we offer is oral cancer screenings. Our dentist will perform this screening to search for any indications there could be cancer in your mouth. Ideally, we will be able to identify any cancer early on and take preventative measures. The earlier we catch it, the more likely it will be able to heal without significant expense. Our team will decide if you need an oral cancer screening during one of your routine visits to our Tulsa dentist office. Our dentist will discuss why you may need this examination with you and answer any questions before scheduling the exam. If one of the below applies to you, it’s more likely that you’ll want to schedule a routine exam for oral cancer to ensure the health of your mouth:
Our Tulsa dentist will check your mouth thoroughly for the tell-tale signs of oral cancer during the oral cancer screening exam. This often includes unnatural red or white patches in the mouth. The dentist will also check for other irregularities in your mouth and throat, such as lumps. Rest assured that with Dentistry For You, your dental health is in good hands!
