What is oral cancer screening?

Oral cancer screenings are an important part of maintaining good oral health. Though many people may associate cancer with other parts of the body, the mouth is just as susceptible to developing cancerous cells. Oral cancer screenings allow dentists to examine the mouth for signs of cancer.

At Tysons Dentistry, we are not only concerned with your teeth, but also your overall health and wellbeing. That's why we do oral cancer screenings as part of our routine examinations. In the early stages, oral cancer may not cause any pain or other symptoms, so it is important to catch it in the early stages when it is most treatable.

Screenings are quick and easy and can help catch oral cancer in its early stages. Early detection is the key to a successful treatment. During your screening, we will look for any signs of oral cancer, such as red or white patches in your mouth, lumps or bumps, and changes in the way your teeth fit together.

If you notice anything unusual, have any concerns about oral cancer, or have questions about oral cancer screening, we encourage you to contact our Vienna, VA office at any time to schedule an appointment.
