At Dental Hub Dentist, Dr. Juveria Fakhruddin can find oral cancer before it becomes severe. We examine the tissue in your mouth and use OralID™ to help find any early presence of oral cancer.
Oral cancer includes cancer of the lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat, sinuses, and hard or soft palate. Oral cancer is typically successfully treated when it is detected early. Most cases of oral cancer are not found until they have progressed into a serious stage. This becomes more difficult to treat.
Our office is dedicated to assisting you detect and treat oral cancer and other abnormalities during the early stages. During a routine dental cleaning and exam, we perform an oral cancer screening to check for signs of oral cancer.
