Importance of Early Oral Cancer Detection

Early detection of oral cancer is crucial for effective treatment, and our team is equipped to identify signs at the earliest stages.

A Commitment to Comprehensive Care:

Early diagnosis of oral cancer can greatly increase the chances of successful treatment. We utilize the latest techniques to spot early signs and symptoms of oral cancer, ensuring our Auburn patients receive the best preventative care.

Thorough and Attentive Assessments:

Our oral cancer screenings involve a detailed examination of your entire oral cavity. We look for any unusual signs, such as persistent sores, unusual lumps, or discoloration. A tactile examination of the mouth and throat tissues is also conducted to detect any abnormalities.

Lifestyle Tips for Oral Cancer Prevention:

  • Avoid tobacco and limit alcohol intake.
  • Maintain a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Protect your lips and skin from excessive sun exposure.


Advanced Diagnostic Measures

State-of-the-Art Screening Technology: Should we find any area of concern, Alta Vista Dental Care may utilize advanced diagnostic tests. This might include simple, non-invasive procedures like a brush test to collect cells for analysis. If necessary, we will guide you through the next steps, which may include a biopsy.
