We are proud to provide expert oral cancer screening to our patients as part of our comprehensive dental care services. Residents of all ages in St. Petersburg, Florida can benefit from oral cancer screenings. Dr. David Sherberg has extensive experience and knowledge in screening for oral cancer, and he is dedicated to using the most advanced technology available to identify mouth and throat cancers in their earliest stages.
Oral cancer screenings are simple examinations that are done during a dental visit to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in the mouth. People with a high risk of oral cancer are especially benefitted from oral cancer screenings. Factors that put patients at high risk include: tobacco use of any kind, heavy alcohol use, previous oral cancer diagnosis, family history of oral cancer, and history of significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer.
Mouth Cancer Tests
Oral cancer affects more than 30,000 Americans each year and causes thousands of deaths among those who suffer. Mouth cancer tests are specialized exams given by your dentist to identify suspicious growths, lesions, or evidence that oral cancer is present. At Bayway Dental, Dr. David Sherberg provides mouth cancer tests as a part of our routine general and preventive dental care. It is especially important to everyone to visit the dentist on a regular basis. As with all types of cancer, oral cancer can spread and grow very rapidly, and early intervention can save your life. If for any reason you have a concern come up within your mouth in between dental visits, please contact Bayway Dental right away for a thorough examination. We are committed to your health – both your oral health and your overall health. There is a strong connection between your oral health and the rest of your body.
