What are the signs of oral cancer?

There are five stages of oral cancer. Each stage has the ability to affect the lips, teeth, gums, inside lining of the mouth, and roof and floor of the mouth. Oral cancer detection may be possible without a screening. Some warning signs of oral cancer may include:

  • Lip or Mouth Sores
  • Discolored Oral Patches
  • Trouble Chewing or Swallowing
  • Numbness of the Tongue, Lip, or Mouth
  • Lumps or Thickening in the Tongue or Mouth

When is oral cancer screening recommended?

While oral cancer symptoms may be present, oral cancer is not always the case. Dr. Nguyen and our team always encourage annual oral cancer screening appointments for a professional evaluation. By scheduling oral cancer detection, you and our team increase the chance of oral cancer detection sooner. If you are experiencing any above symptoms, please get in touch with our team as soon as possible for oral cancer testing.

What happens during an oral cancer screening?

An oral cancer screening consists of a visual and physical exam. Once you’re comfortable in the dental chair, a friendly team member will begin the oral cancer screening by using a light, mirror, or tongue depressor to look for any abnormality. After the visual exam, our oral cancer dentist will complete the screening by gently touching your mouth, neck, and cheeks to feel for masses or lumps. We’ll then discuss your results and any concerns you may have following the screening.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
