Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening
It is estimated that over 40,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral and throat cancer this year.  When cancer is detected and treated early, disease and treatment-related health problems are reduced.
During your dental visit, our team will talk to you about your health history and look for signs of oral cancer. The screening begins with a visual inspection of the mouth and palpation of the jaw and neck. Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
In between visits to Oak Lane Family Dental, please be aware of the following signs and symptoms and contact us if they do not disappear after 14 days.
The symptoms of mouth or throat cancer can include:
  • A sore or irritation that doesn't go away.
  • Red or white patches.
  • Pain, tenderness or numbness in mouth or lips.
  • A lump, thickening, rough spot, crust or small eroded area.
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving your tongue or jaw.
Oral Cancer is a serious health risk and should not be taken lightly. Regular dental visits allow early detection.  Please call today for a dental exam and a full oral cancer screening at Oak Lane Family Dental.
If you have any questions or want to learn more about our services, please contact Oak Lane Family Dental today at (601)587-7737.
