Oral Cancer Screening
At Royal York Dental we believe that early detection is crucial for the treatment of oral cancer concerns. This is why we offer oral cancer screening at our routine appointments.
What is an Oral Cancer Screening?
Oral Cancer Screening is a way to detect oral cancer in early stages. Our dental hygienists play a crucial role in early detection of oral cancer and will scan you at each routine check-up.
Oral cancer screening at your next appointment
During your routine hygiene appointment your dental hygienist will perform an examination of your mouth, neck and head for any abnormalities in these areas. Your hygienist will look for swelling, enlarged glands, ulcers and changes in texture inside of your mouth.
Your dental hygienist will also do an external examination of your head, face and the back of your neck for any issues. To help support your oral and overall health, ensure to book a dental hygiene appointment once every six months.
Please tell your hygienist if you are interested in learning more about oral cancer screening.
