Stay Safe With Regular Oral Cancer Checks
At Loganville Family Dentistry in Loganville, we provide comprehensive oral cancer screenings to help ensure the health and safety of our patients. The key is to catch oral cancer in its early stages so we can begin immediate treatment.
What do oral cancer checks involve?
During an oral cancer check, our dentist will examine your mouth for signs of tumors or other abnormalities, such as red or swollen bumps inside and on the gums. This examination can include feeling around the neck and jaw area for lumps or enlarged lymph nodes, looking inside the cheeks and lips for suspicious spots, and using a special light to look at the soft tissues inside your mouth. Our staff will also ask you questions about any changes in your lifestyle that could affect your risk of oral cancer, whether there is a history of the disease in your family, and transitions in your overall health.
What are the benefits of undergoing oral cancer checks?
Regular oral cancer screenings are important for patients of all ages, as early detection can help improve treatment outcomes. Our assessments can be used to identify tumors or other suspicious areas in the mouth that may need further evaluation.
How often should you have an oral cancer check performed?
We recommend that our patients undergo routine oral cancer checks during every checkup. If you have any underlying health conditions or lifestyle factors that increase your risk of developing oral cancer, such as smoking or excessive alcohol use, you may want to undergo these checks more often. Our team can help you determine the frequency of your screenings based on your individual needs.
