It’s estimated that over 40% of people have some form of early oral cancer. At the International Center for Advanced Dentistry, the state of your oral health is crucial to living a healthy, happy life! We provide the best tools for early detection so you can smile beautifully.
Oral cancer screenings are typically performed during your regularly scheduled checkup. A comprehensive oral exam will be performed to analyze any abnormalities and signs of oral cancer.
Here at International Center for Advanced Dentistry, when we have a dental examination done we look at the whole mouth and not just teeth. We look at soft tissues, the tongue, under the tongue, the tonsils, back of the throat.. we want to make sure that everything intraoral is "healthy". Soft tissue abnormalities are painless and often times not know by the patient. So Velscope allows us to identify problems in an early stage, while it can still be treatable.
During your oral exam, we take careful consideration for any signs of oral cancer such as:
Red spots or sores
Tenderness on one side of the mouth
It is important to us that you have a healthy mouth for many years to come. We are pleased to provide the latest in dental technology to detect, diagnose, and treat you as soon as possible. Visit us today to get started!
