Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening at Wicker Park Dental Studio is a quick, non-invasive procedure that can be a lifesaver. We offer comprehensive screenings to our patients in Chicago as part of our commitment to your overall health.

Why Is Regular Oral Cancer Screening Important?

Early detection of oral cancer significantly increases the chances of successful treatment. Regular screenings can help identify cancerous and precancerous conditions early when they are easiest to treat.

What Does an Oral Cancer Screening Involve?

The screening is a simple process that includes:

  • Visual inspection of your mouth for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions.
  • Palpation of the jaw and neck to detect any lumps or abnormalities.
  • Use of special lights or dyes that help identify abnormal tissue.

Who Should Get Regular Oral Cancer Screenings?

While everyone can benefit from regular screenings, it's particularly important for:

  • Tobacco and alcohol users.
  • Those with a history of oral cancer.
  • People over the age of 40.

What Happens If Something Suspicious Is Found?

If we find anything unusual, we may recommend further testing, such as a biopsy, or refer you to a specialist for further evaluation and treatment if necessary.
