A Brief Screening That Can Save Your Life
As part of your annual examination at Carol Stream and Elgin Dental Associates, our dedicated dentists will perform an oral cancer screening. This screening is a brief and comfortable procedure that can potentially save your life. During the examination, we carefully evaluate your oral tissue, including your gums, tongue, and other areas, to check for any signs of oral cancer. Early detection is crucial, and we look out for indicators such as:
- White or red patches
- Raised bumps or lesions
- Bleeding gums
- Sores that don’t heal
If we identify any areas of concern, our experienced periodontist or oral surgeon will further evaluate the situation and discuss appropriate treatment options with you. By taking prompt action, we can increase the chances of successful removal and survival. Regular check-ups at our dental offices are essential, as they allow us to monitor your oral health and address any concerns you may have. Our compassionate team is here to support you and genuinely cares about your well-being.
