Oral Cancer Screenings

The word cancer scares us all, but the more informed we are about this disease, the easier it is to protect ourselves and our loved ones against it. This is particularly true for oral cancer, which is a disease that may not show any visible symptoms until it has progressed to an advanced form, but is easily treatable when detected in early stages. That is why, at the office of Dental Arts, we offer regular oral cancer screenings as a part of the dental examination for all our patients.

Smokers and tobacco users are at a higher chance of developing oral cancer. However, it has been found that the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the most common cause of oral cancer among non-smoking adults. The virus is spread via sexual contact.

Signs & Symptoms of Oral Cancer

Having bumps, lumps, bumps and occasional sores in and around the mouth is common. But in case you see red or whiteulcers, patches or lumps in your mouth or on your face or neck, it is best to have them checked. Most oral cancers progress as scale-shaped carcinomas and exist as lesions on the floor of the mouth under the tongue and on the sides of the tongue.

Screenings For Oral Cancer

Regular screening for oral cancer is one of the most effective ways to prevent the occurrence of the disease or to diagnose and treat it in its early stages. The screening includes a visual and touch-and-feel inspection of your lips, mouth, teeth, gums, tongue, throat as well as the insides of your cheeks. In case we see anything to worry about, a simple brush test is done to collect a tissue sample. This sample is sent to a lab for analysis and if the results are positive or atypical, we may order a biopsy.

Our Happy Customers

"I can not thank the staff at Dental Arts Associates enough for their immediate help last night and again today. Dr Zak Rosen is funny, down to earth and just awesome. I will be switching to them for all my work, even through they are out of network. The office was immaculate, have new equipment and they are all just great. Thanks again Dr Zak!"


"I was in the market for a new dentist (actually I really liked my old dentist, but the organization had too many flaws so I left) and Dental Arts was recommended to me. I'm so glad I took the recommendation. Dental Arts does a lot of the little things that make the experience as best as it can be. I always get greeted and seen quickly upon my arrival. The work that Dr. Zach has done on me has been efficient and done really well, and he's always sharing the things I need to know and will answer any questions. If I had anything to gripe about it would be that sometimes the front desk will ask questions or explain things in very technical terms, which can be confusing. Many of us aren't in the field so we need things explain in more laymen's terms. This is simply something I noticed, but I will continue to be a patient here for the long run. Highly recommended!"


"I had a very good experience today. I am very afraid when it comes to dentist and pain. I felt do pain whatsoever. I would recommend Dental Arts to anyone. Most of my family comes here also. All I can say is Great Job!!!"
