Early Detection for Lifelong Oral Health

At Winchester Dental Group, we prioritize your overall health by offering comprehensive oral cancer screenings. Early detection of oral cancer can significantly improve treatment outcomes and ensure a healthier future. Our screenings are a vital part of our preventive care services, providing peace of mind and safeguarding your oral health.

Comprehensive Oral Examination

Our oral cancer screenings involve a thorough examination of your mouth, throat, and neck. We use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to detect any abnormalities or signs of cancer at an early stage. The examination includes a visual inspection of your oral tissues, gums, tongue, and lips, as well as palpation of the lymph nodes in your neck to identify any unusual lumps or swellings.

Advanced Diagnostic Technology

We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to enhance the accuracy of our oral cancer screenings. This includes the use of VELscope, a non-invasive device that helps identify abnormal tissues that may not be visible to the naked eye. By using advanced technology, we can detect potential issues early and recommend appropriate follow-up care.

Our team is dedicated to providing personalized care and support throughout your screening process. If any abnormalities are detected, we will guide you through the next steps, which may include further diagnostic tests or referrals to specialists.
