At Seattle Smiles Company, we understand the importance of early detection in effectively managing oral cancer. That is why we incorporate thorough oral cancer screenings into our routine dental exams. Our dedicated dentist and team use the latest techniques to ensure you receive the most comprehensive care.

What is an Oral Cancer Screening?

Oral cancer screening is a preventive measure that helps identify cancerous and precancerous conditions in the mouth at an early stage. During the screening, our dentist will examine your mouth for any signs of red or white patches, sores or other unusual changes. This process is quick, noninvasive and crucial for catching symptoms early, which can significantly improve treatment outcomes.

What to Expect During Your Oral Cancer Screening

During your visit, Dr. Ajay Kashi will conduct a thorough examination of your lips, tongue, cheeks and throat for any signs of oral cancer. This includes a visual inspection and a physical examination where the doctor will feel the tissues in your mouth to detect any abnormalities. The process is quick and painless but could save your life. If any areas of concern are identified, our dentist may recommend further diagnostic tests or a biopsy to determine the appropriate course of action.
