Our dental specialists perform complete oral cancer screenings for every patient at every appointment. Most often, oral cancer does not present with symptoms at all, therefore it is important to get regularly checked. A periodontist will examine inside and around a patient’s mouth, including the lips, to identify lesions or other abnormalities. If identified, we perform a biopsy of the affected area and coordinate with a trusted lab for accurate and prompt results as we keep you informed in real-time and discuss next steps in consulting an oral cancer specialist.
According to the American Cancer Society, the average age at diagnosis for oral cancer is 62, and two-thirds of individuals with this disease are over age 55.
