Detecting Oral Cancer Symptoms Early
Early detection of oral cancer is key to maintaining optimal oral health for life. Some of the most common oral cancer symptoms can be mistaken for a simple toothache or even a cold. If you notice persistent mouth sores, a white or red patch anywhere inside of the mouth, loosening of the teeth, or numbness of the tongue or other parts of the mouth, you need to visit us for an oral cancer exam immediately. We encourage all patients to have an annual oral cancer screening regardless of symptoms.
