Dental Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer Screening assists us to identify cancer when it’s in the early stages. If identified early, oral cancer can be treated successfully.
There are various areas where oral cancer can grow such as the lips, gums, the roof of the mouth, under the tongue and inside of the throat. Oral cancer can develop in individuals at any age, it is known that smoking and heavy alcohol use can increase an individual’s chance of developing oral cancer.
When you visit our office for your normal oral hygiene check up and dental exam, we will perform a screening for oral cancer. If we suspect anything during the examination, we will provide you with information about oral cancer and complete further testing.
The team at Victoria Street Dental Centre will ensure that you feel well informed about the risks of oral cancer and treatment methods.
