Oral cancer screenings are an important part of your routine dental check-up. These screenings are performed to look for any signs of oral cancer in its early stages, when it is most treatable. Our dental team is trained to perform oral cancer screenings during your regular check-up, using a variety of methods.
During the screening, our dentist, Dr. Gabriel Jaramillo, will examine your mouth for any signs of abnormal tissue or growths. We may also ask you about any symptoms you may be experiencing, such as mouth sores or difficulty swallowing. If we detect any potential signs of oral cancer, we may recommend further evaluation for a final confirmation or refer you to a specialist for a biopsy.
We understand that the idea of an oral cancer screening can be scary or uncomfortable, but it is a necessary step in maintaining your overall health. Our team is dedicated to providing a compassionate and supportive environment during your screening. We want to ensure that you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process.
