At Perrinville Family Dentistry, we are deeply committed to not only maintaining the health of your teeth and gums but also to safeguarding your overall well-being. Recognizing the critical importance of early detection in the successful treatment of oral cancer, we incorporate comprehensive screenings as a fundamental part of our routine dental exams. Our goal is to ensure that any signs of oral cancer are identified promptly, allowing for early intervention and a better prognosis.

Oral cancer screenings are quick, non-invasive procedures that Dr. Kumudra Soe and Dr. Gary Jacky will perform to check for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. The process involves a visual inspection of the mouth, including the lips, tongue, throat and the insides of the cheeks, as well as a physical examination to feel for lumps or abnormalities in the neck and jaw area. These screenings are crucial for detecting oral cancer early, even before symptoms become apparent to the patient.

We recommend regular oral cancer screenings for all our patients, as early detection significantly increases the chances of successful treatment. Factors such as tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption and a history of oral cancer can increase the risk of developing oral cancer, making screenings even more vital for individuals with these risk factors.
