Recognizing the Telltale Signs of Oral Cancer

When you have a check-up at your family dentistry practice, in addition to looking for gum disease and tooth decay in Alpharetta, your dentist will also screen you for oral cancer. Because oral cancer can metastasize quickly, it is important to be alert to the symptoms between appointments. This video explains more.

Oral cancer affects the soft tissue of the mouth and the tongue. Be alert to sores that don’t heal and are painful or may bleed. Call your family dentistry practice if you have any suspicious lesions in your mouth to get a proper diagnosis, as injuries and periodontal disease can sometimes mimic the symptoms of oral cancer.
