Oral cancer screening is one of the most important diagnostic exams performed by a dentist or doctor. As the name suggests, the primary purpose of a dentist oral cancer screening test is to identify signs of oral cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth.
You should ideally spot and stop oral cancer at the earliest stage possible because it quickly becomes dangerous. As such, during dental cancer screening, your dentist will look for early signs and symptoms of mouth cancer.
At Sapphire Dental, our dentist performs oral cancer screening during a routine dental visit or oral exam. If necessary, we may also use additional tests to identify precancerous lesions or abnormal cells in your mouth. We also provide thorough oral exams with mouth cancer screening as a part of our 99 special for new patients.
