Oral cancer screening for Plainville, CT residents

Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive care possible. That includes an oral cancer screening and evaluation. Every hour of every day, one American dies of oral cancer.

If detected early, oral cancer survival rates increase by 90%. If detection waits until lesions are visible to the naked eye, the survival rate drops to a staggering 35-40%.

Oral cancer often starts as a tiny, unnoticed white or red spot or sore anywhere in the mouth. It can affect any area of the oral cavity, including the lips, gum tissue, cheek lining, tongue, and the hard or soft palate.

Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, can detect cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions.

As part of the Central CT Dental Group’s comprehensive general dentistry service in Plainville, near Farmington, our skilled team of dentists perform free oral cancer screening and examinations during your routine check-up.

It’s just one of the many special services we offer our patients — and one of the reasons why people from throughout Plainville and Farmington choose our office for their dental care.
