When you visit us from Aurora for your next dental appointment, we can perform an oral cancer screening.
Many types of head and neck cancers begin in the mouth, which is why it is so important to be screened for oral cancer if you have any concerns at all. At Amberwood Dental Centre, we would be more than happy to perform an oral cancer screening at your next appointment. Our office staff, hygienists, and dentists will ensure your comfort and confidence when you come in for this screening, and ensure the results we provide are accurate.
If the results of your oral cancer screening come back positive, we will provide you with information about the next steps you need to take. Keep in mind that the earlier you find out about the possibility of oral cancer, the easier it is to find a cure. A standard oral cancer screening also only takes about five minutes to complete, so it can be a part of your next appointment without interfering with your schedule.
Although you cannot necessarily prevent oral cancer, you can be aware of your risk factors. For example, if you smoke, consume alcohol regularly, or consume a poor diet, you may be more likely to get oral cancer as you get older. We would be more than happy to help you understand your unique risk factors at your next examination.
At Amberwood Dental Centre, we only want what’s best for you and your oral health. For more information about what happens at an oral cancer screening or to schedule your next appointment, contact our office that serves the Aurora, Ontario area today.
