We carry out mouth cancer screenings during all dental examinations to help detect and diagnose mouth cancer in its early stages.

As oral health professionals, we are in the most appropriate position to detect and diagnose mouth cancer in our patients, so we include mouth cancer screenings in all our dental examinations. Early detection is crucial when it comes to treating mouth cancer and can help patients receive the treatment and care they need in the most timely manner.

Signs of mouth cancer

  • Red and white patches in the mouth.
  • Ulcers or sores.
  • Swelling in the neck and chin.
  • Lumps and other abnormalities in the mouth.
  • Unusual patterning on the tongue.


What are some risk factors associated with mouth cancer?

Smoking, excessive alcohol, and HPV can all increase the risk of mouth cancer in patients.

What happens during the screening?

In most cases, we’ll simply check the mouth and neck area for any of the signs and symptoms listed above.

What happens if you see anything of concern?

If we detect any warning signs, then we’ll either ask you back for a follow-up appointment so we can keep an eye on your progress or refer you to a specialist.
