Oral Cancer: How to Ensure Early Detection

You Should Know:

  • Oral cancer often starts as a tiny, unnoticed white or red spot or sore anywhere in the mouth.
  • It can affect any area of the oral cavity including the lips, gum tissue, cheek lining, tongue and the hard or soft palate.

Other Signs Include:

  • A sore that bleeds easily or does not heal
  • A color change of the oral tissues
  • A lump, thickening, rough spot, crust or small eroded area
  • Pain, tenderness, or numbness in the mouth or on the lips
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing or moving the jaw or tongue
  • A change in the way the teeth fit together

Regular Dental Check-ups Important
Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. You may have a very small, but dangerous, oral spot or sore and not be aware of it. Be sure your dentist is providing you with an oral cancer exam at each and every cleaning visit. Affinity Dental has the skills and tools to ensure that early signs of cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are identified, and we ensure this is a regular part of each dental visit!
