Oral Cancer Detection 

Oral Cancer Detection is a dangerous disease that affects many people each year. Early Oral Cancer is critical for effective treatment, yet many cases of oral cancer go unnoticed until it has progressed to a later stage. Understanding the early signs and symptoms of Mouth cancer detection, as well as the methods of detection available, is critical for improving the odds of successful treatment.

Oral cancer is defined as abnormal cell growth in the mouth, tongue, lips, or throat. It is usually caused by a mix of hereditary and environmental factors, including smoking and drinking, poor oral hygiene, and viral exposure. Because oral cancer can be fatal if not found and treated early, it is critical to be aware of the warning signs.

Our oral cancer detection testing procedure includes a comprehensive examination of the mouth and throat. We use advanced technology, such as Oral ID’s fluorescence technology (oral cancer screening equipment), to detect any abnormalities in the tissues. These gadgets emit a blue light that might highlight any questionable regions that may require additional investigation.

If we find any evidence of oral cancer, we may perform a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. During a biopsy, we will take a small sample of the worrisome tissue and send it to a laboratory for investigation. It is crucial to highlight that not all suspicious spots in the mouth or throat are malignant. Some may be benign, or non-cancerous, and do not require treatment. However, it is essential to have a thorough examination to rule out any potential risks.

Oral cancer detection is an essential part of comprehensive dental care. At House of Dontics, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of care, including oral cancer detection. We encourage our patients to prioritize their oral health and schedule regular dental checkups to maintain healthy teeth and gums and detect any potential issues early on.
