Oral Cancer Screenings

Every year, approximately 42,000 Americans receive a diagnosis of head or neck cancer. That’s why oral cancer screenings should be a routine part of your regular check-up with your dentist. Watch this video to find out more about how dentists screen patients for oral cancer.

The video explains that many patients have one or more small, flat red or white spots or sores inside their mouths. The dentist may take a tissue sample for screening in order to determine whether or not a spot or sore is harmless. He or she may also refer you to the appropriate specialist. Dentists can not only safeguard the health of your teeth; they can also help to provide an early diagnosis of oral cancer. Early detection of oral cancer may save your life.
