With oral cancer, early detection is your best protection. Oral cancer claims over 8,000 American lives each year. This form of cancer often goes undetected until it metastasizes (spreads) to other body systems or regions. Our office routinely screens patients for oral cancer during checkups.
Our doctors and staff will look for white patches, mouth sores, tenderness, tissue color changes, and any changes that look problematic. Oral cancer screenings at Fluellen Family Dentistry only take a few minutes.
