Denver Oral Cancer Screenings

Contact Midtown Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

Few things are terrifying as finding out that you have cancer. Cancer tears apart families, ruins lives, and costs thousands of dollars to fight. As such, it’s crucial that you incorporate cancer prevention into your oral health treatment plan.

At Midtown Dental, we specialize in oral cancer screenings that use blue dye tests to properly identify oral cancer. We treat our patients with compassion and respect, helping protect them against and identify signs of oral cancer before it becomes a life-threatening emergency. So whether you’re at particular risk of oral cancer or simply want a check-up, we’ve got you covered.

Warning Signs of Oral Cancer

Oral cancer occurs when cancer cells metastasize and develop in and around the mouth, leading to abnormal tissue growth and further complications. While oral cancer sometimes creeps up on patients out of nowhere, it’s often possible to detect it as it occurs by watching for these signs:

  • Red or white patches
  • Unexplained lumps or swelling in the mouth, throat, or neck
  • Frequent, painful mouth sores
  • Difficulty swallowing

The Limits of Oral Cancer Screenings

As dental professionals, we can’t overstate how crucial oral cancer screenings are in maintaining great oral health. However, simply relying on visual analysis sometimes misses abnormal tissue buildup. That’s why we may use other advanced imaging techniques, like X-rays, to ensure accurate detection of cancer cells.

We take pride in personally tailoring every oral cancer screening to a patient’s unique needs. We consider all risk factors, like heavy alcohol and tobacco usage, so you know you’re getting a comprehensive screening that considers all possibilities.
