During an oral cancer screening, your Dentist will examine your entire oral cavity including your throat, palate, tongue, the floor of the mouth and gum line. This examination takes place during your routine visit to the dentist, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms. Oral cancer signs include chronic sores with irregular shapes and discoloration; fortunately, radiation therapy is effective for mouth cancer treatment. Early detection is the best prevention.
