An important message about oral cancer from the

American Dental Association

Now precancerous cells can be detected-years before oral cancer can start. See your dentist regularly and ask about a brush test for oral spots.

 

What You Can Expect as Part of Your Routine Exam:

  • Your dentist and hygienist look for spots in your mouth.
  • If a spot is observed, your dentist may recommend further testing.
  • A brush test sample is then sent for computer-assisted laboratory analysis.
  • Even if a lab identifies abnormal cells, they can typically be removed-years before they can harm you.

 

If a brush test finds unhealthy cells, they can typically be removed, years before they can penetrate the basement membrane and become oral cancer.

 

What you should know:

1. Most People Will Have

tiny white or red spots in their mouth at one time or another.

2. See your Dentist Regularly

for a thorough oral exam.  Although the vast majority of these spots do not contain unhealthy cells, your dentist may recommend further testing.

3. Even If A Lab Identifies

abnormal cells, they can then typically be removed-years before they can harm you.
