Stay Ahead Of Oral Cancer With Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious health concern affecting millions of people worldwide. Our regular dental check-ups at Woodland Lakes Dental in Orlando and Alafaya offer an ideal opportunity for early detection through oral cancer screening. This non-invasive procedure allows us to identify potential signs of oral cancer at its earliest stages, significantly increasing the chances of successful treatment.
What does oral cancer screening involve?
Our dentists thoroughly examine your mouth, lips, tongue, gums, throat, and other tissues during an oral cancer screening. We search for abnormalities such as red or white patches, sores, lumps, rough or thickened areas, and unusual changes in tissue texture. We may also perform a neck and lymph node examination to identify any swollen or enlarged glands, which can be a sign of oral cancer. This visual and physical examination can identify suspicious lesions or symptoms warrant further investigation.
What are the advantages of oral cancer screening?
Oral cancer screening identifies potential cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions before they develop into more severe conditions, increasing the likelihood of successful treatment and improved outcomes. Our dentists can detect oral cancer in its earliest stages by conducting regular oral cancer screenings, even before visible symptoms appear. This preventive approach empowers patients to take proactive measures, such as quitting tobacco, reducing alcohol consumption, and adopting healthier lifestyle habits. Oral cancer screening is a simple, painless, and non-invasive procedure that can be seamlessly integrated into routine dental check-ups. It takes only a few minutes, during which the dentist performs a thorough examination and discusses any concerns or findings with you. Knowing your oral health is closely monitored can give you peace of mind.
