Oral cancer is a serious medical condition that, when identified early, can often be treated successfully. At Torrance Dentistry, located in Torrance and serving the surrounding communities such as Redondo Beach and Lomita, we emphasize the importance of regular oral cancer screenings to ensure the health and well-being of our patients.

What is Oral Cancer Screening?

Oral cancer screening is a routine examination performed by our dental professionals to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. This process is designed to identify oral cancer at an early stage when there’s a greater chance for a cure.

The screening involves a thorough examination of the entire oral cavity, including:

  • Lips and gums
  • Inside lining of the cheeks and lips
  • The floor and roof of the mouth
  • The back of the throat
  • Tongue and surrounding tissues

The Importance of Early Detection

Oral cancer can develop without noticeable symptoms in its early stages, making regular screenings vital. At Torrance Dentistry, we understand the importance of early detection. By incorporating oral cancer screenings into your regular dental checkups, we can identify signs of cancer when it’s most treatable.

Symptoms and Risk Factors

Though regular screenings are essential, it’s also important to be aware of symptoms and risk factors associated with oral cancer. These may include:

  • Unexplained mouth sores or bleeding
  • Persistent throat discomfort or difficulty swallowing
  • Long-lasting changes in the texture or color of oral tissues
  • Risk factors such as tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, and certain types of HPV infection

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to consult with our dental professionals without delay.
