Oral Cancer Screening


Ribbon to signify Oral Cancer Screening by dentist in Wasilla, AK.Your mouth is part of the oral cavity, which also includes your lips, cheek lining, gums, the front part of your tongue, the floor of the mouth, and the hard palate (roof of your mouth). The throat (pharynx) starts at the soft part of the roof of your mouth and continues back into your throat. It includes the back section of your tongue as well as the base where the tongue attaches to the floor of your mouth.

During your dental visit, your dentist can talk to you about your health history and examine these areas for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Symptoms of Mouth or Throat Cancer


•  Sores that bleed easily or do not heal
•  Thick or hard spot or lump
•  Roughened or crusted area
•  Numbness, pain or tenderness
•  A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite down

Make sure to tell your dentist about any problems you have when chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving your tongue or jaw.

At Aurora Dental Care in Wasilla, our dentists will include a thorough oral cancer screening, including a VizLite scan, during your comprehensive exam.
