Your health and smile are our top priorities, and we are here to ensure your peace of mind through comprehensive oral cancer screenings.
Regular oral cancer screenings offer a range of benefits that are essential for your well-being:
The frequency of oral cancer screenings may vary depending on individual factors such as age, medical history, and lifestyle choices. As a general guideline, we recommend that adults undergo oral cancer screenings at least once a year during their routine dental check-ups. However, if you have a higher risk profile due to factors such as tobacco or alcohol use, a family history of oral cancer, or certain medical conditions, more frequent screenings may be necessary.
During your oral cancer screening at Gower Family Dentistry, our skilled dental team will perform a thorough examination of your oral cavity. We will visually inspect your lips, tongue, cheeks, gums, and throat for any abnormalities, such as sores, lumps, or changes in color or texture. If any suspicious areas are identified, further diagnostic tests, such as a biopsy, may be recommended for a definitive diagnosis.
