Don’t Let Fear of the Dentist Prevent an Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings Oral cancer screenings are key for protecting your health, but many people shy away from being screened due to fear of the dentist. We understand, and our team is here to create an anxiety-free experience that protects your oral health and well-being. During your dental exam, we can perform an oral cancer and oral health screening that helps you manage risks with confidence.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is highly treatable in many cases, but unfortunately, far too many patients are not diagnosed when the disease is in its early stage. A screening is a simple process that involves examining your lips, gums, tongue, and mouth for any abnormalities. There are no sharp tools involved, and the whole process only takes a few minutes.

You can receive an oral cancer screening twice a year during an exam. When diagnosed early and treated properly, the five-year survival rate of oral cancer is 86%.

Sedation Dentistry for Oral Cancer Screenings

We recognize that exams can be extremely stressful for many patients. We aim to help you establish new, positive experiences at the dentist that encourage you to be proactive about your oral health.

While full sedation is not necessary for an exam, some patients with severe anxiety may benefit from intravenous or oral sedation to help them feel more relaxed. This is a personal and medical decision that Dr. Siegelman will closely discuss with you.

We also offer specialized treatment for our patients, including dentistry options for those who are experiencing chronic pain, those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and patients who have autism. We encourage you to reach out and learn more.
