Why Your Dentist Should Screen for Oral Cancer

Some dental practices are already screening for oral cancer at routine check-ups; this might become more widespread in the future.

What you need to know:

– Oral cancer includes cancers of the tongue, cheek, lips and throat is life-threatening if not caught early enough.

– Signs of oral cancer include a chronic sore throat, persistent sores or lesions, difficulty chewing and unexplained bleeding or tenderness around the teeth.

– During the screening your dentist will ask about risk factors much as smoking and check inside and outside your mouth.

“Scheduling dentist appointments every six months is a good routine to follow.”
