We perform oral cancer exams at every dental checkup and cleaning here at Creating Smiles, PC. This involves examining your mouth, lips, gums, oral cavity, and throat for any abnormalities including lesions, tumors, and bleeding. Oral and throat cancers can be treated effectively if they are diagnosed early, but at a more advanced stage, these cancers have a much lower rate of survival. Individuals who smoke, dip, and chew tobacco or consume alcohol excessively are about 50% more likely to develop oral cancer than those who don’t.
