Oral Cancer and Complications

While you are at the doctor’s office, in just 3 to 5 minutes, you can receive a comprehensive oral cancer examination. An oral cancer screening such as this should be conducted every year, and is easily incorporated into your routine visits for health check-ups, or cleanings and regular exams at our office. Our office uses the VELscope System which is a hand-held device that provides us with an easy to use mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue.

Oral complications are not uncommon during cancer treatment. Cancer treatments can cause dry mouth and salivary gland dysfunction that increase the risk of oral infections, compromise speaking, chewing and swallowing. We offer consultations and effective products to help patients deal with side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
