What Is Oral Cancer Screening?
Oral cancer is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent forms of cancer today. Because few people realize that oral cancer is a risk, they often don’t get diagnosed until it’s past the early stages, which makes it much more dangerous.
One of the best things about oral cancer screening is that it’s so quick and easy that we can do it during your regular cleaning appointments. The screening mainly consists of Dr. Rosen checking the tissues of your mouth for any irregularities, such as unusual textures or white or red spots. Everyone should be screened for oral cancer regularly, but it’s particularly important for those with risk factors such as smoking, tobacco use, previous history of oral cancer, alcohol use, and age.
