Dedicated to Complete Oral Health

Our office is not only dedicated to your smile, we’re also dedicated to your overall wellness. We take a serious approach to your dental care, which includes an oral cancer screening as a part of your regular exam. Like any kind of cancer, oral cancer can be life threatening if not diagnosed and treated early.

Signs of Trouble

We have the skills and tools to ensure that early signs and symptoms of oral cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are identified. While these symptoms may be caused by other, less serious problems, it is very important to visit our office to rule out the possibility of oral cancer. The most common signs and symptoms of oral cancer include:

  • Red or white patches in the mouth or lips
  • A sore or blister in your mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Earaches
  • Change in the way that the teeth fit together
  • Bleeding in the mouth

Screening

We are trained in a simple, quick screening that involves an examination of your oral cavity as a whole and not just your teeth to detect cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. Besides a visual examination of your mouth, we will also feel the tissue of your mouth and throat to detect any abnormalities.

Prevention

Aside from receiving an oral cancer screening during your checkup at our office, the main thing you can do to help prevent oral cancer is to avoid all tobacco products and only drink alcohol in moderation.
