As part of your initial consultation and subsequent routine check-ups, you will receive an oral cancer screening.

An oral cancer screening is a comprehensive visual examination, often aided by a special light that illuminates abnormal cells. We will inspect the entire oral cavity and its surfaces including inside of the cheeks, the roof of the mouth, below the tongue and back of the throat. The oral cancer-screening dentist will also evaluate the face and lips to look for any signs of oral cancer.

Oral cancer detection can be very difficult because lesions or lumps are often located under the tongue and there are generally no painful symptoms. Some of the more common warning signs include:

  • Persistent mouth sores, usually lasting more than 2 weeks
  • Hoarseness
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Lumps in the mouth, throat or neck
