During your dental exam, we will look for signs of oral cancer.
Oral cancer, just like other cancers, can spread and be detrimental to the body. The key to living your life without fear is early discovery. When oral cancer is discovered in the early stages, it can be removed and the body can heal before the issue becomes greater.
Because of the dangers of oral cancer, the staff at Glazer Dental is trained to spot signs of oral cancer and knows how to test it correctly upon first sight.
Signs & symptoms of oral cancer include:
• A sore that doesn’t heal
• A sore that bleeds
• A growth, lump or thickening of the skin or lining of your mouth
• Loose teeth
• Poorly fitting dentures
• Tongue pain
• Jaw pain or stiffness
• Difficult or painful chewing
If you are concerned that you may have some of these symptoms, call Glazer Dental today to make an appointment. We will review your oral health and bring you the peace of mind you deserve.
