Oral Cancer Examination
This examination is part of all patient examinations that are performed at PerioClinik. The purpose is to catch any suspicious changes and ensure lesion detection at a stage where it is easier to treat.
A painless, visual examination
We'll check for abnormalities such as unusual bumps
If any suspicious lesion is found, a biopsy is performed
An oral screening should be done once a year
Most periodontal problems can be diagnosed by a careful oral examination and review of the patient’s X-rays. However, sometimes, clinical testing may not give a clear answer, and there may be no obvious findings on the X-rays either. In these cases, performing an exploratory flap can be helpful to determine the problem and finalize diagnosis and treatment appropriately.
