As part of your dental examination, Smïl provides meticulous screening for mouth cancer for your health and peace of mind.

What Is Oral Cancer?

In oral cancer, abnormal cell division leads to lumps, bumps, and discolouration of otherwise healthy tissues.

Almost everyone is familiar with cancers like breast and lung cancer. This type of atypical cell can, however, appear anywhere on the body. In order to ensure the health and safety of all of our patients, Smïl provides regular screenings.

What Can Cause Oral Cancer?

The likelihood of developing oral cancer can be affected by many risk factors. As well as tobacco products and alcohol consumption, HPV (human papillomavirus) is a leading cause. Sunlight exposure is also a factor in the development of cancerous cells on the lips.

What happens during a mouth cancer screening?

You will receive screening as a part of a routine checkup with your dentist. The actual process is straightforward. During your examination, your dentist will feel under your chin for swelling and inspect your mouth for signs of abnormality. We’ll watch for lumps, ulcers, and white patches that can’t be easily removed.

If you happen to notice any changes in your mouth or ulcers that do not heal, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your dentist.
