Comprehensive Oral Cancer Screenings | Bohemia Dental Arts

Early detection is crucial in the fight against oral cancer. At Bohemia Dental Arts, we offer comprehensive oral cancer screenings to identify potential signs of oral cancer at its earliest stages. Our experienced team uses advanced screening techniques to provide you with the best possible care, helping to ensure your long-term health and well-being.

What is Oral Cancer?
Oral cancer refers to cancer that develops in any part of the mouth, including the lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and throat. Early detection of oral cancer is essential for successful treatment and can significantly improve the chances of recovery.

Importance of Oral Cancer Screenings:
Regular oral cancer screenings are an important part of maintaining your oral health. These screenings can help detect oral cancer early, before it has a chance to spread, making treatment more effective and less invasive. At Bohemia Dental Arts, we recommend that all adults undergo oral cancer screenings as part of their routine dental check-ups.

Signs and Symptoms of Oral Cancer:

  • Persistent mouth sores or ulcers that do not heal
  • Red or white patches in the mouth
  • Unexplained pain, tenderness, or numbness in the mouth or lips
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, or speaking
  • A lump or thickening in the cheek
  • Persistent sore throat or hoarseness
  • Unexplained weight loss

Our Oral Cancer Screening Process:
The oral cancer screening process at Bohemia Dental Arts is quick, painless, and non-invasive:

Visual Examination:
During your screening, our dentist will conduct a thorough visual examination of your mouth, including your lips, tongue, cheeks, gums, floor of the mouth, and throat. We will look for any signs of abnormalities, such as sores, lumps, or discolored patches.

Our dentist will gently palpate (feel) the tissues in your mouth and neck to check for any unusual lumps or thickening that may indicate the presence of cancer.

Advanced Screening Techniques:
In addition to the visual examination and palpation, we may use advanced screening techniques, such as fluorescence visualization, to detect any abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. These techniques can help identify early signs of oral cancer that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Follow-Up Care:
If any abnormalities are detected during your screening, our dentist will discuss the findings with you and recommend the appropriate follow-up care. This may include a biopsy, referral to a specialist, or additional diagnostic tests to determine the nature of the abnormality.
