About the Service
Oral cancer can affect anyone, and we are pleased to offer screenings at Gentle Family Dentistry as part of our oral exam process.
Oral cancer includes cancers of the lips, tongue, a floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat (pharynx), sinuses, and hard and soft palate. While oral cancer can usually be successfully treated when detected early, most cases of oral cancer are not detected until they have progressed into a more serious, advanced stage that is much more difficult to treat. In fact, oral cancer may be life-threatening. At our office, we are dedicated to doing all we can to detect and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage. During your routine dental cleanings and exams at our office, our dentist and team will perform an oral cancer screening to check for the signs of oral cancer.For example, if you’ve chipped off a small fraction of your enamel. In such a case that teeth damage can be repaired easily with a special filling. If a front tooth is affected or the damaged area can be seen when you smile, a more complex, “bonding”, the procedure might be employed. Using a tooth-colored composite material called resin.
