Dentist Loop Chicago

Oral cancer screening is a routine examination performed by a dentist to check for signs and symptoms of oral cancer in the mouth and throat. Early detection of oral cancer can lead to more successful treatment outcomes, so it is important to have regular oral cancer screenings.

Some of the signs and symptoms of oral cancer that a dentist may look for during an oral cancer screening include sores in the mouth that do not heal, lumps in the neck, difficulty swallowing or chewing, numbness or tingling in the mouth, changes in the way your teeth fit together, and white or red patches in the mouth. If you experience any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to see your dentist right away.

Oral cancer screening is a quick and painless procedure that can be performed by your dentist in Chicago. During an oral cancer screening, your dentist will visually inspect your mouth and throat for any signs of oral cancer. They may also palpate your neck for any lumps or masses. If your dentist sees anything suspicious, they may order additional tests, such as a biopsy.

Oral cancer screening is recommended for everyone over the age of 18, but certain people are at an increased risk and should be screened more often. These include people who use tobacco or alcohol, have a history of oral cancer, or have a family history of oral cancer.

Terrific dental office and services. Everyone - the reception, hygienist and dentist are super friendly and attentive. I’ve been seeing Dr. Brian Post for several years for both semi-annual checkups and dental work which has been excellent. Also, for those that drive the two hour parking garage validation makes it super convenient.
