Do you get a Yearly Oral Cancer Screening?

Posted on 7/28/2015 by Jolie
A woman suffering from oral cancer.If you are not keeping up with your regular dental appointments and having a yearly oral cancer screening completed, you could be at risk for oral cancer and not even know it. The screening is non-invasive, yet can save your life - what are you waiting for?

An oral screening is more than an exam with the naked eye. It is the use of a tool that can see the tissues in your mouth more clearly through the use of a fluorescent light. This means that you have a better chance at catching oral cancer in its earliest stages rather than waiting until the signs can be seen with the naked eye. When this occurs, you are at higher risk for more invasive treatments and larger consequences that could affect the rest of your life.

Risk Factors
Everyone should have an oral cancer screening, but if you fall into any of the following categories, it is vital that you get screened:

•  Smoker or tobacco chewer
•  Heavy drinker
•  History of oral cancer in the family
•  Occurrences of HPV virus in your past
•  Poor oral hygiene

If you have not had an oral cancer screening lately, now is the perfect time. It is quick, non-invasive and could end up saving your life. Regular screenings can help to catch any signs early on, allowing you to have minimal treatment, yet effective results.

If it is time for your oral cancer screening, please call us for an appointment today!
