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