Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is serious, and early detection can impact your prognosis. As part of our preventive care, we offer thorough oral cancer screenings. Using visual and manual screening methods, Dr. Chincheck will examine your gums, tongue, cheeks, and other soft tissue of your mouth for any abnormalities. Additionally, we’re equipped with Vizilite technology, which uses a safe chemiluminescent light to aid in the identification of lesions and abnormalities. Tobacco, alcohol use, and HPV exposure are the primary lifestyle risk factors, though anyone can develop the disease, which makes screening vital for all patients, especially those over age 40.
