At Allen Dental Associates, we believe that your oral health plays a vital role in your overall health. That’s why every one of our regular check-ups includes an oral cancer screening. We are dedicated to ensuring everyone is as healthy as they can be and we believe that starts with your mouth!
Your oral exam will involve one of our highly trained professionals examining the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or oral sores. We will be also looking for lumps or other abnormalities in the oral tissues. Additionally, your throat and neck may be examined for lumps.
We believe it is important for everyone to receive routine oral cancer screenings. Early detection is vital in combating oral cancer because treatment can be started immediately. High alcohol consumption and smoking are known to be causes of oral cancer.
