Your oral health is our top priority at Greensboro Ivory Dental, which is why we offer comprehensive oral cancer screening as part of our dental health services. Early detection is key to effectively treating oral cancer, making regular screenings crucial for your well-being.

During your screening, Dentist Greensboro will meticulously examine your lips, tongue, gums, mouth, and throat for any signs of abnormalities that could indicate cancerous growth. We take your symptoms seriously and encourage you to report any concerns promptly. If you’ve been experiencing symptoms such as unexplained mouth bleeding, persistent mouth sores, or dramatic weight loss for more than a week, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our dentist.

Awareness of the risk factors associated with oral cancer is essential for early detection. Factors like genetic predisposition, prolonged sun exposure, poor diet, and excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk. Men are more susceptible than women, and individuals with conditions like GERD or those who use tobacco products are at heightened risk.

The success of oral cancer treatment hinges on early detection. When caught in its early stages, oral cancers boast an impressive 80 – 90% survival rate. Early intervention allows for less invasive treatment options, whereas advanced stages may require more extensive procedures and have a lower likelihood of successful outcomes.

We warmly welcome new patients seeking oral cancer screening and encourage you to reach out to our office for more information. Your health is too important to ignore. Schedule a consultation with Greensboro Ivory Dental today and take a proactive step towards safeguarding your well-being.
