Visiting a dentist regularly will help you maintain good oral health and help identify any changes of your mouth, tounge and throat including pre cancerous cells or oral cancers. The earlier the identification of concerns the better for treatement prognosis. At Alderlea Dental in Duncan we use oral screening to identify early signs of oral cancer before they progress to a more advanced stage.
During an oral screening, we will use a velscope to look for discolouration or mouth sores. Tissues around your mouth are felt to check for any lumps or abnormalities. If any of these are found, a sample will be sent for further examination. Call us today to learn more.
