How Often Should I have an Oral Cancer Screening?

The signs of oral cancer often go undiagnosed or unnoticed. The earliest signs of oral cancer are small white or red spots and mouth sores. Dr. Anderson is an experienced San Ramon family dentist who offers oral cancer screenings to his patients. Dr. Sean Anderson’s oral cancer screenings help detect the earliest signs of oral cancer before the cancer is untreatable.

How Often to Have Oral Cancer Screenings

Visiting your family dentist at least every six months for a checkup and cleaning helps keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Oral cancer screenings can be conducted at the same time as your routine checkups and is an integral part of keeping your entire body healthy.

Oral cancer can show itself anywhere in your mouth including:

  • Your tongue
  • Your cheeks
  • The roof of your mouth
  • Your throat

The early signs of oral cancer can show themselves at anytime. Having an oral cancer screening each time you have your routine checkup will ensure that the early stage of the cancer is noticed and treated. Dr. Anderson will examine your entire mouth and throat for any signs of oral cancer.

If you are in the San Ramon area, please contact Dr. Anderson to schedule your family dentistry appointment for your routine check up and oral cancer screening.
