Oral Cancer Detection
Allow your dentist the time to get to know your teeth and mouth. Frequent visits to your dentist mean they can quickly notice any abnormalities or changes in your oral health. It is important to catch these early on so they can be treated with good results. We will also teach you what to watch for. Some of the following symptoms can be signs of mouth or throat cancer:
- Red or white patches
- Pain, tenderness, or numbness in your mouth or lips
- A lasting sore or irritation
- A lump, rough spot, or eroded area
- A change in your bite
- Increased difficulty chewing, speaking, or moving your mouth or jaw
- a change in the way your voice sounds
Schedule Your Oral Cancer Screening
If you are experiencing one or several of these symptoms, then we urge you to contact your dentist and schedule a consultation immediately. Ignoring the signs will not make them go away.
