Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

Skyview Dental Care is not only dedicated to your smile, we’re also dedicated to your overall health and wellness. Like any kind of cancer, oral cancer can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. Our clinicians have the skills and tools to ensure that early signs and symptoms of oral cancer are identified.

The most common signs of oral cancer include:

  • Red or white spots or sores anywhere in the oral cavity
  • A sore that bleeds easily or does not heal
  • A lump, thickening, or rough spot anywhere in the oral cavity
  • Pain, tenderness, or numbness anywhere in the mouth or on the lips
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue

Our dentists, hygienists and assistants are trained to screen the oral cavity which involves an examination of your mouth as a whole to detect cancerous and precancerous conditions. Not only is a visual examination of your mouth performed, we will also palpate the tissue of your mouth and throat to detect any abnormalities.

During your oral cancer screening, the following areas of your oral cavity will be assessed:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Tongue
  • Floor of the mouth
  • Hard and soft palate
  • Tonsils
  • Throat
  • Neck

Aside from receiving an oral cancer screening at Skyview Dental Care, there are many things you can do to help prevent oral cancer

  • Avoid all tobacco products and only drink alcohol in moderation.
  • Maintain a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Limit sun exposure and always wear sun screen on your skin and lips.
