Oral Cancer Screenings Help Protect Your Oral & Overall Health
Oral cancer screenings are an important part of every oral health maintenance plan, and at Galerie Dental Care in Beaumont, we’re proud to provide these screenings during checkups and cleanings, and when patients would like to have developing oral symptoms examined.
How are these screenings performed?
Our dentist or hygienist will examine your mouth for signs and symptoms of any abnormalities. Should we find anything concerning, such as sores or lumps, we will discuss our findings with you and provide recommendations on next steps. We will also feel the tissues of your face and neck to check for any irregularities.
Why are oral cancer screenings important?
Oral cancer screenings are vital for catching early signs and symptoms that may require further examination. Early detection is critical to giving individuals the best chance of successful treatment.
Who should undergo these screenings?
At Galerie Dental Care, we recommend that all patients receive a routine oral cancer screening at least once a year. Patients who are at high risk for developing oral cancer due to smoking or drinking, or those with a family history of the disease, should receive more frequent screenings.
