Oral Cancer Screenings
Because millions are affected by cancer and its debilitating effects, our oral cancer screenings will put your mind at ease with early detection and prevention. Some factors that can increase risk include:
- Tobacco use of any kind. Including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff, among others.
- Heavy alcohol use
- Previous oral cancer diagnosis
- History of significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer.
During an oral cancer screening exam, your American Dental Solutions dentist looks over the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or mouth sores. Using gloved hands, your dentist also feels the tissues in your mouth to check for lumps or other abnormalities.
It is our goal to treat all of our patients with compassionate care and provide complete oral health to the best of our abilities. Furthermore, we have 14 convenient locations for you to choose from as to better fit your schedule and needs.
