Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening is a procedure in which a dentist or doctor examines your mouth for indicators of cancer or precancerous diseases.
Oral cancer screening aims to detect mouth cancer at an early stage when there is a better possibility of a cure.
During a typical dental visit, most dentists will examine your mouth to check for oral cancer. Additional tests may be used by some dentists to help detect areas of abnormal cells in your mouth.
Whether healthy adults without risk factors for mouth cancer should be screened for oral cancer is a point of contention among medical organizations. There is no evidence that a single oral checkup or oral cancer screening test reduces the chance of dying from mouth cancer.
