Oral Cancer Screening helps us seek out cancer in its early stages. Oral cancer, if found early, has a high success rate of being treatable.
Oral cancer can develop on the lips, gums, the roof of the mouth, under the tongue and in the throat. While oral cancer can strike people of any age, we know that smoking and heavy alcohol use can increase your chances of developing oral cancer.
Screening for oral cancer is performed as part of our oral hygiene check-up and dental exam. If anything suspicious is detected during your examination, we will explain to you the risks of oral cancer and perform further tests.
Feel free to discuss oral cancer screening with Toronto dentist Dr. Paul Branco during your next visit. Book an appointment with us today!
