Oral Cancer Screening
The Van Horne Dental team in Victoria Park offers our patients oral cancer screening, to help detect any abnormalities early.
During your routine hygiene appointment your Van Horne dental hygienist will perform a complete examination of your mouth, neck and head for any abnormalities in these areas.
Your hygienist will check for swelling, enlarged glands, ulcers and changes to the texture of the tissue in your mouth. Your dental hygienist will also do an external examination of your head, face and the back of your neck for any issues.
To help support your oral and overall health, ensure to book a dental hygiene appointment once every six months. Through early detection via regular oral cancer screenings, we can detect any abnormalities early which can give patients more treatment options. Please tell your hygienist if you are interested in learning more about oral cancer screening.
