Oral Cancer Screenings in North Point, GA
Regular screenings can lead to early detection of oral cancer, greatly improving a patient’s chance of recovery. That’s why these screenings are one of the most important tasks your Northpoint Dental dentist performs during a regular check-up.
For most patients, a screening includes visually inspecting areas of the mouth for signs of abnormalities. For patients at a greater than usual risk, a biopsy may be performed. In some cases, you may be asked to rinse with a fluorescent dye so that we can distinguish between normal and precancerous tissue using a special light.
