Why Oral Cancer Screening works – Dentist Sandy Springs

Oral ExamDuring an oral exam, your dentist looks over the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or mouth sores. Using gloved hands, your dentist also feels the tissues in your mouth to check for lumps or other abnormalities. Yet, screening for oral cancer isn’t without controversy, though. No single oral exam or oral cancer screening test is proven to reduce the risk of dying of oral cancer. The addition of HPV as a risk factor for oral cancer has made it difficult if not impossible to easily define high risk individuals. OPPORTUNISTIC mass screening is the only viable choice to find oral cancer at precancerous or very early stage high survival stages.  Still, you and your dentist may decide that an oral exam or a special test is right for you based on your risk factors.
