Comprehensive Oral Cancer Screenings for Early Detection

At Sonrise Dental, we prioritize your overall health with comprehensive oral cancer screenings. These screenings are a crucial part of our dental examinations, aiming for early detection and effective intervention.

The Importance of Regular Oral Cancer Screenings

Regular oral cancer screenings are essential because they:

  • Help in the early detection of oral cancer, which is crucial for successful treatment.
  • Allow for prompt intervention if any abnormalities are found.
  • Provide peace of mind and are an integral part of your regular dental health check-ups.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

During an oral cancer screening, our dentist will:

  • Conduct a thorough visual examination of your mouth, including lips, tongue, cheeks, and throat.
  • Feel the tissues in your mouth for any lumps or abnormalities.
  • Use special tools if necessary to view less visible areas of your mouth.
  • Discuss any symptoms you may have experienced, such as sores that don’t heal or persistent sore throat.

What If a Screening Detects Something Unusual?

If a screening reveals any signs of concern:

  • We may recommend further diagnostic tests or a biopsy.
  • Prompt referral to a specialist for further evaluation may be provided.
  • Comprehensive support and guidance will be offered throughout the process.
