At De Lucs Dental, LLC, we are concerned about your smile and committed to your overall well-being. As part of our all-inclusive approach towards dental care, we provide an oral cancer screening during your regular dental exams. Oral cancer can be fatal if not identified and treated early.
We have the required experience and skills to identify early signs and symptoms of oral cancer and precancerous conditions. While other, less severe problems may cause these symptoms, it is very vital to visit our office to rule out the chances of oral cancer.
Oral cancer can affect your oral cavity's soft and hard tissues, and typical symptoms of oral cancer include:
It is vital to remember that some patients may dismiss lesions for a canker sore or another benign health concern, which is why it is so essential to undergo regular screenings.
During your regular dental exams, Dr. Gary Lucombe will perform visual examinations of your teeth, gums, throat, neck, head, and oral tissues to look for any areas of concern. This is a painless process to screen for any signs of cancerous or precancerous cells.
In addition, we will look for any presence of sores, lumps, or rough patches in your mouth. Dr. Gary Lucombe will also explain the risks associated with various lifestyle factors that can increase your possibilities of developing oral cancer, such as smoking, HVP, and drinking alcohol in excess.
