Screening for oral cancer is conducted every six months during your teeth cleaning appointment at our office. We look at the lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, under the tongue, and at the back of the mouth for any white or red changes. This routine examination is done regularly and at no charge when paired with your regular dental exam. If something unusual is detected visually, it will prompt further examination.
Early detection and treatment may well be the key to a complete recovery. If you have any questions, please let us know, Dr. Jalbout will provide you with the best possible care.
