Oral Cancer Screening
The Bell Dental Group offers oral cancer screening during all routine examinations.
Research has shown that certain risk factors escalate a person’s chances of developing oral cancer. Those risk factors include the use of tobacco, the consumption of alcohol, and hereditary factors.
During your routine exam, our dentists will perform an extensive screening to identify signs and symptoms of oral cancer. This screening includes:
- Careful examination of the mouth to identify red or white patches or mouth sores
- Examine the texture of tissues in the mouth, in order to discover lumps or abnormalities
- Examination of the surrounding areas of a patients mouth, including the face, neck, and throat.
