Over 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral and throat cancers each year. As with any type of cancer, the chances of recovery rely in part upon how early the cancer was first detected. During your general dental exam and cleaning, our Westbrook Dental dentists perform thorough oral cancer screenings near Guilford, CT, to protect your health.
When you visit our Westbrook dental office, our 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 a saliva sample to a specialized lab for processing. If there are any warning signs of cancer, we will recommend that you promptly schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. By facilitating early cancer detection, our dentists and dental team at Westbrook Dental work toward more than just the health of your teeth and gums — we support your full physical health!
