Over 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral and throat cancers each year, and as with any type of cancer, the chances of recovery rely in part upon how early the cancer was first detected. As part of your general dental exam and dental cleaning, our Westbrook, CT dentists perform a thorough oral cancer screening.
When you visit our Westbrook dental office, your dentist will perform a visual inspection of your mouth and a physical examination of your jaw and neck. We also offer a simple, non-invasive test that checks for the presence of HPV (a common virus which can lead to oral or throat cancer) by sending some of your saliva to a specialized lab for processing. Should any warning signs of cancer present themselves, we will then recommend that you promptly schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. By helping to facilitate early cancer detection, our dentists and dental team at Westbrook Dental work toward more than just the health of your teeth and gums!
