    What is a Oral Cancer Screening?

    Early detection is paramount in combatting oral cancer. Learn about the importance and process of oral cancer screening to safeguard your health effectively.

    Oral cancer screening is a proactive examination aimed at detecting signs of oral cancer in its early stages when treatment is more effective. Typically performed by dental professionals, the screening involves a thorough examination of the oral cavity, including the lips, tongue, gums, and the lining of the mouth. Dentists look for abnormalities such as persistent red or white patches, unusual lumps, or sores that do not heal, as these could be indicative of early-stage oral cancer.

     

    Early detection through oral cancer screening plays a crucial role in improving the prognosis and increasing the chances of successful treatment. Regular screenings are particularly important for individuals with risk factors such as tobacco and alcohol use, as well as those with a family history of oral cancer. By identifying potential issues early on, healthcare providers can initiate timely interventions, potentially saving lives and reducing the impact of oral cancer on patients’ overall health.

    Oral Cancer Screening: Protect Your Smile

    Oral Cancer Screening Process

    Discovering early signs of oral cancer is vital. The oral cancer screening process involves thorough examination of the mouth, tongue, and throat to detect any abnormalities, enabling timely intervention for improved prognosis.
    step-1
    Patient History
    Dr. Sinha begins by taking a detailed medical and dental history from the patient. This includes information about any previous oral health issues, lifestyle habits, and family history of cancer.
    step-2
    Physical Examination
    A thorough physical examination of the oral cavity is conducted. Dr. Sinha carefully examines the lips, gums, tongue, cheeks, palate, and the floor of the mouth for any abnormalities such as lumps, swelling, discoloration, or sores.
    step-3
    Advanced Technologies
    Dr. Sinha may utilize advanced technologies such as VELscope, a special light that can help identify abnormal tissues that may not be visible to the naked eye. This aids in early detection and improves the chances of successful treatment.
    step-4
    Biopsy, if Necessary
    If suspicious lesions or abnormalities are found during the examination, Dr. Sinha may recommend a biopsy. A small tissue sample is taken for laboratory analysis to determine whether cancer cells are present.
    step-5
    Imaging Studies
    In some cases, imaging studies such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans may be ordered to get a more detailed view of the oral structures and assess the extent of the suspected cancer.
    step-6
    Treatment Planning
    Regular dental check-ups are essential for monitoring the condition and preventing a recurrence of gum disease. Maintenance cleanings, often scheduled more frequently than routine cleanings, may be recommended to keep the gums healthy.
    step-7
    Follow-Up Care
    Dr. Sinha emphasizes the importance of regular follow-up appointments for patients who have undergone treatment for oral cancer. These appointments are essential for monitoring recovery, addressing any side effects of treatment, and detecting any signs of recurrence at an early stage.

    Had my cleaning done with Amanda who was incredibly thorough and such a pleasure to chat with. Had my cleaning done about 20 minutes after being shook by the little earthquake so my anxiety level was a little high. Amanda was gentle and very informative throughout the cleaning. She made me feel calm and relaxed in her care. Dr. Sinha then came in to check my X-rays and my teeth. I love that he takes his time and doesn’t rush through. He offers great explanation into his decision making process and I think he’s one the most honest dentists I have encountered. The energy in this practice is so positive and it was all around a great experience. They stay up to date with the newest advances in dental care and the office is super clean. I am happy to be a patient here. 💯 recommend to anyone who cares about their teeth and is looking for a great dentist. Thank you guys for being so awesome!❤️

    I was in search of a new dentist after relocating to the area. Came across PS Dental and was very pleased with the overall service, quant office and service team. Amanda (hygienist) was very professional and her cleaning was painless. Morgan (front office) response time was beyond expectations and she was able to answer my many inquiries. 10/10 experience overall and I will be having my wife come over as a new patient hopefully soon!
