What Are Oral Cancer Screenings?

Oral cancer screenings are when dentists check for potential signs of oral cancer. They can be conducted during regular appointments, or you can schedule a cancer screening if you suspect you have cancer.

When completing a cancer screening, Kind Dental will look for red or white patches or sores. We will also check for any lumps in your mouth, throat, and neck. In an advanced cancer screening, we may use ink or blue light to find abnormal cells.

Our team will help you at every step of the cancer screening process. We can help you determine what the best next steps are for your situation. Regular oral cancer screenings are an important part of maintaining good oral health.

While oral cancer screenings can be completed at any appointment for all patients, some individuals have a higher risk of oral cancer. These individuals include:
