Radiant Smiles is committed to providing comprehensive dental care that goes beyond routine checkups and cleanings. One essential aspect of our practice is providing early detection and prevention of oral cancer through regular screenings. Oral cancer is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition, but when detected at an early stage, it is often highly treatable. Our oral cancer screenings are a vital component of your dental health, which we offer at our dental center in the Alexandria and Arlington, VA, area.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer can affect various parts of the mouth, including the lips, tongue, gums, cheeks and the soft and hard palate. The early stages of oral cancer may not present noticeable symptoms, which is why professional screenings are critical. By identifying any potential issues in their early phases, we can provide prompt referrals and necessary follow-up care to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Our oral cancer screenings at Radiant Smiles are thorough and painless, often integrated into your regular dental checkup. During the examination, Dr. Chandna will check for any abnormal tissue or lesions in and around the mouth. She will assess your lips, tongue, the inside of your cheeks, the roof of your mouth and your throat. If any irregularities or suspicious areas are detected, we will conduct a more in-depth evaluation and may recommend a biopsy to determine the nature of the issue.

Risk Factors for Oral Cancer

Certain lifestyle and health factors can increase the risk of oral cancer, including smoking or tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, a history of oral cancer, excessive sun exposure to the lips and exposure to the human papillomavirus (HPV). If you have any of these risk factors or are concerned about your oral health, it is especially important to schedule regular dental checkups and oral cancer screenings.

Early Detection, Better Outcomes

Oral cancer is more treatable when detected early. The sooner any potential issues are identified, the greater the chance of successful treatment and recovery. Our commitment to early detection through regular oral cancer screenings is an essential part of our mission to ensure the health and well-being of our patients.

At Radiant Smiles, your oral health is our top priority. Our comprehensive dental care includes preventive measures like oral cancer screenings to ensure that we can catch any potential issues as early as possible. If you have any concerns about your oral health or would like to schedule a checkup and oral cancer screening, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and dedicated team. We are here to support your dental health and provide the care you need to maintain a radiant and healthy smile. Call our Arlington, VA, dental center to schedule your appointment.
