Does the dentist do an oral cancer screening?

We care about your general health and well-being, so every routine checkup and teeth cleaning at our Ellicott City dental office includes a thorough oral cancer screening. This is an easy process and is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Oral Cancer Screenings in Ellicott City

Routine oral cancer screenings are essential because the symptoms are often so subtle that you may not realize what they are. In many cases, a dentist is the first person to detect oral cancer, and these routine screenings can potentially save your life. With early detection, oral cancer is highly treatable, with a 90 percent survival rate.

Statistics provided by the Oral Cancer Foundation show that as many as 50,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed in the US each year. Unfortunately, the mortality rate associated with oral cancer is high because it is often not detected until it has progressed to the more advanced stages.

How We Perform an Oral Cancer Screening

During your oral cancer screening, Dr. Sokolosky will examine your lips and the soft tissue in your mouth to look for signs of growths or abnormalities. What appears to be a simple white spot may be recognized by Dr. Sokolosky as precancerous.

Please contact our Ellicott City dental office, and we'll be happy to arrange an exam and cleaning that includes an oral cancer screening.
