Oral Cancer Screening

Prevent Mouth Cancer in Indianapolis

mouth cancer and oral cancer screening with an Indianapolis dentist in FishersOral cancer is a serious health threat that affects over forty thousand Americans a year, and kills over half of its victims within five years. At Dental Care Today, just east of Carmel, we want to make sure that our patients are as protected as possible from the devastating affects of mouth cancer in Indianapolis.

The following symptoms all may be indicators of oral cancer:

  • Mouth sores that heal very slowly
  • White or reddish patches in the mouth
  • Jaw or tongue pain
  • Loose teeth or ill-fitting dentures
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing
  • A throat that feels sore all the time
  • The feeling that something is caught in your throat all the time

These symptoms do not necessarily mean that you have mouth cancer, but if you are experiencing them, come into our office in Fishers for an oral cancer screening as soon as you can. Our Indianapolis patients have a better chance of receiving successful oral cancer treatment the sooner the disease is detected, and the less time the cancer has had to spread. We recommend that our patients come into our office for an oral cancer screening at least once a year as part of our general dentistry services.

Our Oral Cancer Screening Protocol

ViziLite oral cancer screening technology helps patients throughout Indianapolis and Carmel detect mouth cancer early.

Our oral cancer screenings are safe and extremely accurate. We use state-of-the-art Vizilite technology in our oral cancer screenings to provide patients with results that they can count on and trust. ViziLite works by using a chemiluminescent light source to assist in the identification of cancerous lesions. We are proud to offer such a valuable service to our patients and will do everything we can to make your dental experience enjoyable and carefree.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
