Oral Cancer Screening

At Lexington Heights Dental, we are committed to not only maintaining but also enhancing your overall oral health, which is why we offer comprehensive oral cancer screenings. Early detection is crucial in the effective treatment of oral cancer, and our dedicated team is trained to recognize the early signs and symptoms.

Understanding Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are an essential part of your dental checkups. These screenings are designed to detect early signs of oral cancer, which can often go unnoticed. The earlier oral cancer is identified, the more effective the treatment can be. We recommend regular screenings for all our patients, as this proactive approach is vital for maintaining not just oral health, but overall well-being.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?

During your visit, our dentists will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, including your lips, tongue, throat tissues and gums. This examination is non-invasive and painless. We look for any signs of abnormalities or changes in your oral tissues, such as sores, lumps or discolored areas. If any unusual symptoms are found, we may recommend further diagnostic tests or refer you to a specialist for additional evaluation.

Benefits of Oral Cancer Screenings

  • Early Detection: Increases the chances of successful treatment.
  • Non-Invasive and Painless: A simple, quick and comfortable examination.
  • Peace of Mind: Regular screenings provide reassurance about your oral health.
  • Comprehensive Health Check: Part of an overall strategy to maintain good health.
  • Suitable for Everyone: Recommended for adults, especially those at increased risk.
