We understand that there are many questions and concerns regarding choosing a dentist for cosmetic dentistry. Please review the following common questions about oral cancer screenings:
To put it simply – an oral cancer screen is an exam that looks for signs of cancer in your mouth. This examination is performed by a dentist with the goal of identifying signs of cancer early.
The short answer is: yes. Oral cancer screenings are necessary to ensure that you’re being proactive about your health.
Early detection is essential when it comes to oral cancer. Oral cancer causes fatalities in half of its victims within five years of diagnosis. Screenings can help to identify precancerous tissue, heightened risk of cancer, and other factors that might suggest a bigger problem is at work.
There’s not one solid rule about how often you should be screened. However, as a general standard, getting screened once a year is recommended for most adults.
The OralID system uses special fluorescence technology to detect abnormalities fast. With the OralID system, abnormal cells can easily be distinguished from healthy cells because abnormal cells lack fluorescence and appear darker. Your dentist will be able to detect these abnormalities using a special pair of glasses. The OralID system saves lives by detecting oral cancer in its earliest and most treatable stage.
