Oral Cancer Screening can be incorporated into your dental hygiene visit. Ask the team at Canyon Dental Centre about oral cancer screening and VELScope technology
Oral Cancer Screening
At Canyon Dental Centre, we strongly believe in the importance of preventive care and oral wellness. Part of your dental cleaning with us can include an annual oral cancer screening.
Did you know that thousands of people die of oral cancer every year?
At our office, we are trained to detect the symptoms and signs of oral cancer before they have a chance to develop into serious problems.
Using the Velscope Oral Cancer Screening system, we provide a simple screening that takes only about 3-5 minutes.
If you experience any of these possible signs of oral cancer please check with us promptly:
- A sore that does not heal within two weeks
- An unusual lump or discoloration
- Pain or difficulty in chewing, speaking or swallowing
- Prolonged hoarseness in your throat
- Numbness in the mouth or facial region
