Oral Cancer Screening

We can help you through the entire process

Oral cancer accounts for 2.9% of all diagnosed cases of cancer in the United States. 


According to the American Cancer Society it is estimated that 51,000 people across the country will develop oral cancer this year and that 10,000 fatalities are expected from the disease.

Oral cancer can occur anywhere in the orofacial complex but is most often found on the tongue, the tonsils and oropharynx, the gums, floor of the mouth, lips, cheek lining or the hard palate. 


While the disease can affect anyone, men are twice as likely to develop oral cancer as women.

Those particularly at risk for oral cancer are men over the age of 50 who are heavy smokers and frequently drink alcohol. 


Additional risk factors may include UV exposure from the sun or sunlamps, GERD (gastro-intestinal reflux disease), prior head and neck radiation treatment, exposure to certain chemicals and poor diet.


While the death rate from oral cancer has been decreasing in the past several decades thanks to early detection and advanced methods of treatment improving the outcomes of care, there has been a recent rise in the incidence of oropharyngeal cancer due to increased transmission of the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV).

As part of a comprehensive exam, the dentist will perform a screening for oral cancer. To start, the dentist will review the patient’s medical and dental histories and ask if there have been any changes to his or her oral health or overall health.

 

The dentist will then carefully check in and around the oral cavity as well as the head and neck area for signs or symptoms that may indicate the presence of a problem

I’ve been afraid of going to the dentist for years and Dr Bratt was recently recommended to me by a couple of my neighbors. Im glad I went! Very friendly and attentive staff, my cleaning wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I had a bad experience years ago so was a bit anxious but the dental hygienist was extremely comforting, and talked me through each step. This is now my new dentist 🙂

I approached my visit with Dr. Bratt with some trepidation. I had been with his predecessor for 30 years and he was the “new guy”. I was pleasantly surprised. Dr. Bratt was a pleasant and thorough professional. I have several potential problems but he approached it with a let’s monitor the situation and didn’t jump on it as an immediate money maker. His hygienist Amy gave the best cleaning I have ever had
