Oral Cancer Screening in Toronto (Yorkville) and Scarborough Dental Offices
At Liberty Square Dental Group, we are continually striving to provide important enhancements in patient care.
Oral cancer screening is a preventive measure to detect early signs of oral cancer or precancerous conditions in the mouth. Our goal is to identify any abnormalities that may indicate the presence of oral cancer or the potential for its development.
During an oral cancer screening at our Scarborough or Yorkville dental office, our dentist or dental hygienist will perform a thorough examination. They will look for any signs of abnormalities such as:
- Red or white patches: These can indicate areas of tissue irritation or potential precancerous lesions.
- Sores or ulcers: Non-healing sores or ulcers that persist for more than two weeks can be a cause for concern.
- Swellings or lumps: The presence of abnormal growths or masses in the oral cavity can be a sign of oral cancer.
If any suspicious areas are identified during the oral cancer screening, our dentist may recommend further diagnostic tests or refer you to a specialist for a more detailed evaluation. Early detection of oral cancer is crucial for successful treatment outcomes, as it increases the chances of successful intervention and improves prognosis.
It’s important to note that oral cancer screening is a preventive measure and does not provide a definitive diagnosis. If you notice any changes or concerns in your oral health between dental visits, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with our Yorkville or Scarborough dental teams as soon as possible.
