Southport Dental Indianapolis | Screening for Oral Cancer

A regular oral cancer screening by your dentist, every six months, is the best way to catch cancer at its earliest stages. An oral cancer screening takes just minutes and can be performed during regular dental exams and cleanings. During your routine dental cleanings and exams at our office, Dr. Mills and his team will perform an oral cancer screening to check for the signs of oral cancer.

The video below demonstrates a screening of oral cancer during a dental checkup:

Oral cancer screenings are important for detecting and treating mouth cancer early! Oral, head and neck cancer represents a variety of cancers that can be found in the mouth, including the tongue, throat, lips, larynx and salivary glands, as well as the sinuses, nasal cavity and thyroid. Early detection is key to surviving this type of cancer.

If you would like to schedule an exam with an oral cancer screening give our team a call at 317-494-7366 to schedule an appointment. We are dedicated to providing you and your family the highest quality dental care!

What our patients are saying about us.

I have been treated by Dr. Mills for 8 years. He has kept my teeth in excellent condition. His dental assistants are friendly and very well trained. Dr. Mills has never recommended any treatment I did not need. He capped my four front teeth as I had darkened caps from a 1980's accident. They are beautiful and I am very pleased. He did all of the work through his office and I did not have to go to other dentists to have the work completed. Best of all, he arranged the work to be done in steps so my dental insurance would cover each cap. He is a great care-giver and he is considerate of his patients!
