Technology to make your treatment better:

Commonly occuring oral cancers

During the oral cancer screening, the dentist and hygienist examine your maxillofacial and oral regions carefully for any pathologic changes, including red patches, white patches, sores and lumps of any kind.

What is involved in the screening?

If a suspicious area is detected, a biopsy can be performed and sent to the pathologist for an evaluation. Depending on the diagnosis, treatment methods can vary, but they may involve excision, radiation therapy, and even chemotherapy.
