One of the most important parts of preventative dentistry is oral cancer screening. It allows the dentists to identify precancerous conditions in your mouth. It enables us to identify any abnormalities at an early stage where cure is a possibility.
Triton Dental offers oral cancer screenings so we can help you eliminate causative factors that could lead to cancer of the mouth. Regular check-ups and screenings can help diagnose signs of precancerous stages, helping us to plan treatments that can prevent progression to cancer and restore your oral health. It is better to be in the know than to deal with oral cancer when it can alter your life forever. If you think that you are showing any symptoms or you have a family history of oral cancer, then visit us and let our dentists take a look.
A preventative oral cancer screening will take 5-10 minutes of your time but can save you from lifelong suffering. Oral cancer screening should be a part of your next dental check-up at Triton Dental. We use the industry-approved technology to find the signs of oral cancer. Early detection is the key to its treatment. We check your mouth or any discolouration or sores. We also check any lumps or growth of tissue in your mouth. If any abnormality is detected, further tests are done. Oral cancers can be effectively treated when caught at an early stage. While everyone should consider getting the screening done, some people, who are more at risk, should definitely book an appointment for oral cancer screening.
