All You Need to Know about our Oral Cancer Screening Hollywood FL Services

When it comes to the Big C, people are becoming more and more aware of the importance of prevention and regular screening. Mouth / oral cancer is a very important issue to keep in mind, as its incidence increased in the young adults populations and impacts almost 50,000 people in the U.S. on a yearly basis. The good news is that if caught early, oral cancer has over 80% recovery and survival rates. In order to stay safe and enjoy impeccable health, here are some things you need to know about our oral cancer screening Hollywood FL services!

1. When Should You Get the Oral Cancer Screening?

Oral Cancer Screening Hollywood FLSpecialists in the field recommend you get the oral cancer screening every time you go to your dentist for your bi-annual check-up visit. This is a rather commonplace procedure performed with hi-tech equipment by expert clinicians, so you will get your results fast and with no stress.

2. What Are the Main Symptoms of Oral Cancer?

Unfortunately, many varieties of oral cancer are asymptomatic. You may have it and not know about it as it rarely comes together with pain or visible symptoms. However, any mouth sore, lesion, soreness, gum inflammation, tongue or neck lumps, ear aches and others should be put on the list and discussed with your doctor.

3. What are the Causes of Oral Cancer?

The usual suspects include smoking and drinking alcohol. In younger populations, there is also the issue of HPV that needs to be addressed. Prolonged sun exposure, deficient nutrition habits and other issues can all be factored in when it comes to getting a diagnosis.

4. What Does the Oral Cancer Screening Hollywood FL Services Involve?

Your doctor will first examine you taking into account at least 10 different areas spread to your face, eyes, mouth, neck, and throat. He will be looking for lesions, masses, abnormal pigmentation areas, lumps and inflammations, fissures, ulcers, and many more.

Once this examination is over, your doctor may also use a hi-tech special lamp to light up your mouth in order to spot the less visible mouth lesions or problems. These lamps are very efficient and can lead to a thorough diagnosis in a matter of minutes.

Depending on the results, your doctor may recommend a biopsy or another type of dental treatment to solve a particular problem (gum inflammations do have numerous causes that need differential diagnosis). You should know that we offer all dental services under one roof, so no matter what dental problems you have; you will be in good hands. Contact us today to schedule your oral cancer screening in Hollywood FL.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
