Oral Cancer Screening in

Every dental examination we provide includes an oral cancer screening. Dentists are specially trained to identify irregularities that may need to be inspected more closely.

After over 20 years of seeing patients from all over Greenbelt, Beltsville, Lanham, Riverdale, Hyattsville, Glenn Dale, and surrounding areas, Greenbelt Dental Associates has the experience and know-how to recognize abnormalities that may need more attention.

Oral Cancer Screening

What is involved in an oral cancer screening?

The screening is quick but thorough, and painless. It involves an examination of the following areas:

  • Back of your throat
  • Tongue
  • Floor of your mouth
  • Roof of your mouth
  • Face
  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Lips

If the dentist finds something unusual, you may be referred to another office for further testing or you may be re-examined later to see if there have been any changes.

When should I get a screening for oral cancer?

It is important to have cancer screenings done regularly to catch any abnormalities early. Depending on the personalized oral care regime you and your dentist have established, you may need to have a more in-depth, but still painless, screening.

At Greenbelt Dental Associates, we are committed to providing the best care possible. If need be, we will get you in touch with the right office to look further into any issues that require further treatment.

Friendly and professional staff. I went for wisdom teeth extraction following an exam and x-rays and all in all I had a great efficient and pain-free experience. Couldn't have asked for better!

Grace N.

Great first impression, I am so scared of dentists but they made me feel welcome during the assessment and x-rays. Can't wait to go back and get my teeth fixed up!
