Does the dentist do an oral cancer screening?

A woman smiles in the dental chair | Oral Cancer Screenings Clarksville, MDYes, our team always performs a thorough oral cancer screening of your entire mouth during regular checkups. The exam includes your teeth, gum tissues, jaw joints, and the bone structure around your teeth. This is an extremely important part of your routine oral health care because regular oral cancer screenings at our Ellicott City dental office can help us detect the disease in its early stages, potentially saving a life.

Studies by the Oral Cancer Foundation indicate that nearly 50,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed in America each year. Unfortunately, the mortality rate associated with oral cancer is high. This is due to the fact that the cancer is often not discovered until it has progressed to the more advanced stages. With early detection, however, oral cancer is highly treatable, with a 90% survival rate.

How We Perform An Oral Cancer Screening

An oral cancer screening takes just a few minutes and is nothing to worry about. We will examine your teeth, lips, and gums for any signs of abnormalities. For instance, what looks like a normal white spot to you might 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.
