  • “I had an emergency dental issue and I was so worried I could not be seen right away. Not only did they see me the same day I called, but it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. Outstanding practice. Highly recommend. I found my new dentist!”

    “Dr. Singh and all his staff are caring, pleasant knowledgeable and professional. What I like best about Dr. Singh is that he is not pushy about treatment. He tells you what needs to be done and lets you make the decision when and if you want it done.”

Why do you screen for oral cancer during check-ups?

Oral cancer traditionally has a low survival rate, primarily because it is caught too late, when the cancer is too far advanced to respond well to treatment. By carefully examining your mouth on a regular basis for any early abnormalities or potential signs of oral cancer, we can determine if further testing, including biopsy, is necessary. Early discovery of oral cancer gives you your best chances of survival and treatment.

You can also help detect oral cancer by keeping up your mouth's overall health. With a healthy mouth, gums, and tongue, you will be better able to detect abnormalities such as sore spots or lesions that do not heal on their own in a few weeks. If you have any lingering sores on your gums, tongue, or cheeks, be sure to mention it at your next exam. It may be an early sign of oral cancer.

With early detection and proper treatment, oral cancer is survivable. Your Middleton, CT dentist Dr. Singh wants to give you your best chance at survival, and if we detect anything suspicious, we will discuss treatment options with you. Call to schedule an exam today to screen for oral cancer and to learn how to keep your mouth happy and healthy.
