Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. We are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.

The oral cancer screening involves checking the tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat, palate and gums for any signs of pathology.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of oral tissues as well as your overall health. If you are a smoker, chew tobacco or consume alcohol on a regular basis, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.

Dr. Basora may refer you to an oral surgeon or ENT (ears, nose and throat specialist) for a biopsy if a suspicious lesion fails to resolve within a short period of time.  Talk to Dr. Basora about smoking cessation programs availble to assist you in breaking the habit.
