For your convenience and health, Dr. Jeremy D. Hatch and our dental team offer oral cancer screenings at our office. They are typically performed during your routine cleaning and exam. These treatments involve your dentist examining your mouth for any signs of oral cancer.
If he does happen to see any unusual signs or characteristics in your mouth, he will perform a biopsy. This treatment is an efficient way of diagnosing oral cancer. The biopsy involves Dr. Jeremy D. Hatch numbing your mouth, especially your gums, and removing a small section of the abnormal tissue. Our dentist will send that sample to a lab where the scientists will examine it and determine if it is cancerous. Then, they will give Dr. Jeremy D. Hatch the results. If necessary, he will refer you to an oral cancer doctor that can help you restore your oral and entire health.
