Oral cancer screening is a rather commonplace procedure meant to catch the early signs of a potential oral cancer. Your dentist can perform this examination each time you pay him a visit every six months for your regular dental check-up. The procedure is completely non-invasive and fast – and it can literally save your life. According to the latest findings, if you catch the symptoms at an early stage, the rates of survival are over 80%. Today, our oral cancer screening Davie FL specialists are here to offer you information about this very important service.
How Is the Oral Cancer Screening Davie FL Examination Performed?
Depending on the situation, the examination included two different stages:
- A clinical examination performed by one of our oral cancer screening Davie FL experts: he will examine your face, eyes, mouth, throat and neck. Your doctor will also pay very close attention to peculiar lumps, masses, lacerations, lesions, spots, or pigmentations in at least 10 areas of interest.
- A clinical examination performed with the help of a hi-tech device (lamp) that is able to illuminate the problematic symptoms which would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye; this procedure is non-invasive and very fast, the new-gen lamps being able to spot even the most inconspicuous lesions in your mouth.
Should your doctor find some worrying signs and symptom, he will recommend you to get a biopsy. If you have nothing to worry about, your oral cancer screening Davie FL expert will recommend you a treatment to solve your dental issues that got you worried in the first place.
