Oral Cancer Screenings in Winter Park
What is an Oral Cancer Screening?
Regular dental checkups are crucial not just for a healthy smile – but to have your dentist check for potential signs of oral cancer. An oral cancer screening is an exam performed by your dentist that checks for cancer or precancerous issues that might be in your mouth. Our dental team at Smile Center of Orlando have extensive experience with oral cancer screenings. It’s important to get checked sooner rather than later before symptoms show. It can be effectively treated if found early. Contact our clinical team today to receive your oral cancer exam.
Should I Receive An Oral Cancer Screening?
Here’s a few things that make patients more likely to get oral cancer:
- Do you use tobacco products like cigarettes, chewing dip or snuff?
- Do you drink alcohol more than you should?
- Have you had oral cancer in the past?
- Do you spend too much time in the sun?
What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening?
