Oral cancer screening is a critical component of preventive healthcare, aiming to identify signs of oral cancer in its initial stages when treatment is most effective. This noninvasive examination allows our dentist to evaluate your risk factors and tailor recommendations accordingly.

Process and Procedure:

Oral cancer screenings are typically quick and painless, often integrated into routine dental check-ups.

  • Visual Examination: Dr. John Han carefully examines the lips, tongue, cheeks and the entire oral cavity for abnormalities.
  • Palpation: Manual examination helps identify unusual lumps, bumps or changes in texture or sensitivity.
  • Evaluation of Risk Factors: We take into account factors like tobacco use, alcohol consumption and family history.
  • Diagnostic Tools: Advanced technologies, including tissue fluorescence and specialized lights, aid in identifying potential areas of concern.

Benefits and Patient Empowerment:

Oral cancer screenings offer numerous advantages, contributing to a holistic approach to health and well-being.

  • Peace of Mind: Regular screenings provide peace of mind by ruling out oral cancer or detecting it in its early stages.
  • Educational Opportunity: Screenings offer an opportunity for our team to educate patients about oral cancer risk factors and self-examination techniques.
  • Comprehensive Care: Integrating oral cancer screenings with routine dental check-ups ensures a well-rounded approach to oral health.
