Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

Monitor and Reduce Your Risk for Oral Cancer

Regular oral cancer screenings provide effective monitoring of your mouth cancer risk factors. At Chester Springs Dental in Exton, we use the ViziLite®️ Plus system to identify and mark any abnormalities in your mouth.

The value of advance diagnosis

Early detection significantly improves your treatment success. We provide a visual examination during your annual dental examination and teeth cleanings.

We thoroughly check your mouth, lips, and tongue. The visual screening combined with the ViziLite®️ Plus system allows us to spot any suspicious tissue or pre-cancerous lesions.

Benefits of using ViziLite®️ Plus:

  • Quick, easy, and time-saving during your scheduled appointment
  • Low-impact technology provides a thorough check of your mouth
  • Disposable for safety following examination

No Dental Insurance? No Problem!

We offer a Membership Savings Club for patients without insurance.

Know your symptoms

Oral cancer may not be painful initially. Consequently, be aware of any abnormalities in your mouth or related symptoms.

  • Lesions or growths on one side of your mouth
  • Mouth sores that are slow to heal
  • White or red areas in your mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing

Contact your Exton dentist with your oral cancer questions or concerns. Schedule an oral cancer screening as part of your next dental examination and teeth cleaning.

Contributing Risks

Factors that can increase the risk of mouth cancer include:

  • Tobacco use of any kind, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff, among others
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Previous oral cancer diagnosis
  • History of significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer

Daily flossing and brushing help prevent unscheduled visits to the dentist when  you combine them with annual dental exams and dental teeth cleanings every 6 months. Also, a healthy diet is important for avoiding tarter build-up, cavities and gum disease.
