Oral cancer, encompassing cancers of the lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat (pharynx), sinuses, and hard and soft palate, poses a significant health risk. It is often life-threatening if not detected early. At our dental office, we are committed to identifying and treating oral cancer and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage.

During your routine dental cleanings and exams, our dedicated dentists and team will conduct an oral cancer screening. This thorough examination is designed to detect any signs of oral cancer, ensuring that if an issue arises, it can be addressed promptly.

Understanding the symptoms of oral cancer is crucial for early detection. Common signs include:

  • A persistent sore throat or the sensation of something being caught in the back of the throat
  • Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  • Sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within two weeks
  • Unexplained numbness, pain, or loss of feeling in the face, neck, or mouth
  • Ear pain
  • Lumps, bumps, or rough patches on the gums, lips, or other parts of the mouth
  • Red, white, or speckled red-and-white patches in the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing, speaking, or swallowing
  • Changes in the fit of your teeth or dentures

Our goal is to support your oral health through vigilant screenings and prompt attention to any issues that arise. If you experience any of the above symptoms or any other type of dental discomfort, we encourage you to contact us immediately. Your health and wellbeing are our top priorities, and we are here to provide the necessary care and support.
