Oral Cancer Screening in Solana Beach, California

Transforming The Experience of Dentistry Since 2000

Cancer screening is important for protecting your health. The earlier you discover an issue, the easier it is going to be to treat. Learn how often you should get an oral cancer screening and what you should expect during this examination.

When Should You Get Oral Cancer Screening?

How often you need to get an oral cancer screening varies depending on your age:

  • Oral cancer is extremely rare in children who don’t have the risk factors that can trigger the condition.
  • If you are between 20-40 years old, you should get an oral cancer screening a minimum of once every three years.
  • If you are at least 40 years old, you should get an oral cancer screening every year.

If you are a smoker or you have HPV, it’s worth speaking with a medical professional to determine your risk level and gain a deeper understanding of how often you should get screened. Men are also significantly more likely to get it than women.

What to Expect

Oral cancer screening is a relatively quick process. The dentist will perform a visual examination of your mouth, as well as feeling for any lumps or abnormal masses. If any issues are found, they will discuss the next steps with you.

Because it’s quick, we can perform this inspection while you’re scheduled for another form of treatment, like equilibration  or teeth whitening .
