Oral Cancer Screenings in Asheville, North Carolina

If you have never had an oral cancer screening before, we invite you to visit our Asheville, North Carolina clinic. Our dental professionals strive to create a warm, welcoming environment where you can get the high-quality care you need. Simply contact our office, and we’ll book you an appointment as soon as possible.

When you turn to our clinic for oral cancer screenings, we will begin the assessment with a careful visual examination of your entire mouth. Our dentist will inspect your lips, gums, tongue, and even the back of your throat to see if there are any noticeable abnormalities, such as sores or irritated patches. Next, the dentist will gently feel the tissue around your jaw and neck to check for any bumps, lumps, or swollen areas. If the visual or physical exam reveals anything unusual, we may use a special light or brush the area to collect cells for further testing.

Once the screening is complete, our dentist will review your medical history with you to determine whether you may be at a higher risk for oral cancer. For instance, if you are a tobacco user or have a family history of cancer, we’ll adjust your oral cancer screenings accordingly. We will also provide you with recommendations to reduce your risk of oral cancer or refer you to a specialist for further testing.

We encourage you to proactively maintain your oral health and schedule routine oral cancer screenings at our clinic. To learn more or schedule your next appointment, please reach out to our team today.
