Dr. Kitagawa will then examine the head and neck region including the TMJ (jaw joint). This screening exam is done to help identify any possible abnormalities. Then an oral cancer screening is completed. If there are any suspicious lesions or growths, it will be biopsied with a painless brush technique. Finally, the teeth and gums are thoroughly examined by looking in the mouth, looking at x-rays and measuring the gums. All the findings are then discussed with you.
