One of the biggest ways to successfully beat oral cancer is by early detection. This is why we conduct an oral cancer screening during your regular comprehensive exam. We take the time to examine your entire mouth for any signs of abnormalities that might require advanced testing. Our team is trained to conduct thorough visual/manual screenings with a keen eye and in-depth skill. We can also rely on our cutting-edge VELscope® Enhanced Oral Assessment System that uses a handheld scope and special light to help us see more clearly so we’re able to detect oral tissue abnormalities such as precancerous or cancerous cells. It’s an extremely useful tool we use in addition to the manual and visual examinations of your head and neck. This highly advanced oral cancer screening doesn’t require dyes or testing procedures and takes only two minutes to complete. If you’ve noticed any unusual changes to your mouth and neck (inside and out) it’s best if you schedule some time for an exam with us. We’re always here to help and answer any questions you may have!
