Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is a serious condition that affects the lips, tongue, and other parts of the mouth. It can be difficult to detect in its early stages, which is why regular screenings are so important. The professionals at River City Dental are trained to identify the signs of oral cancer and provide early treatment when necessary.

During your regular check-up and cleaning appointments, our dentists will perform a thorough examination of your mouth, including a visual and physical examination of the lips, tongue, and other oral tissues.

If any suspicious signs are found, we will refer you to an oral surgeon or other specialist for further evaluation and treatment. It’s important to note that oral cancer screenings are not just for people who smoke or use tobacco products, it can also occur in people who don’t use tobacco.
