Undergo Oral Cancer Checks To Prioritize Your Smile
At Brighter Smile in Jefferson Park, Chicago, oral cancer preventive checks, also known as oral cancer screenings, are an important part of our dental care services. By painlessly and carefully examining the gums, tongue, lips, and surrounding area for any irregularities, our team of experts can help ensure that new or developing symptoms are detected and, if necessary, treated before they become more serious concerns.
How are oral cancer preventive checks performed?
During the screening, our experts will use a light and magnifying glass to look for any abnormalities in your mouth. The areas of concern are checked for lumps, bumps, discolorations, or ulcers. If anything suspicious is found during the exam, we may recommend that further tests may be performed.
What are the benefits of undergoing oral cancer preventive checks?
Early detection of mouth and throat cancer is vital in helping to prevent a more serious diagnosis. Oral cancer screenings can help detect issues before they become dangerous, allowing for timely treatment that can make all the difference.
Who should be having regular oral cancer preventive checks?
People over 40 years old are at higher risk of developing mouth and throat cancer, as are those who use tobacco or excessive amounts of alcohol. Additionally, anyone with a family history of the condition should have regular preventive checks to help prevent and treat potential symptoms.
