After 14 years of seeing patients from all over Keystone Heights, Melrose, Starke, Lake Butler, and surrounding areas, Starling Family Dentistry has the experience and know-how to recognize abnormalities that may need more attention.
What is involved in an oral cancer screening?
The screening is quick, but thorough, and painless. It involves an examination of the following areas:
Back of your throat
Floor of your mouth
Roof of your mouth
If the dentist finds something unusual you may be refered to another office for further testing or re-examined later to see if there have been any changes.
When should I get a screening for oral cancer?
It is important to have cancer screenings done regularly to catch any abnormalities early. Depending on the personalized oral care regime you and your dentist have established, you may need to have a more in depth, but still painless, screening.
Starling Family Dentistry works with the top medical professionals in the nearby area to make sure you get the best care possible. If need be, we will get you in touch with the right office to look further into areas of concern.
