Oral Cancer Screening for SE Calgary

At Progressive Dental, we provide oral cancer screening technology for our patients in the South east (SE) Calgary area. 


Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening also known as OCS, may be a great method to detect oral cancer at an early stage. Our dentists play an important role in the screening process.

Examination

Your hygienist will complete a thorough examination of your mouth, head and neck to check for any abnormalities.

This can be a routine examination during your regular hygiene appointment. Many screening techniques are available alone or in combination with an examination.

Types of Screening

Extra-oral Examination: A visual examination of the face, head, back and front of the neck, including behind eyeglasses and under the hairline and ears.

Intra-oral Examination: A visual check for anything unusual in the mouth including swelling, indentations, enlarged or swollen salivary glands, ulcer/crusting, symmetry and any changes in texture or colour.

At Progressive Dental, we use Oral Screening Technology called VELscope. This screening technology is designed for patients who would like a more thorough examination of their oral cancer risk.
