Dentist Near Me Woodstock - Banner

Patients in Woodstock ask, "Is there a dentist near me who provides oral cancer screenings?"

The 32 Dental team cares about your overall health and wellbeing. We utilize progressive technology at our Kennesaw practice to ensure accurate diagnoses and treatments. This helps in identifying signs of oral cancer. Many patients in Woodstock and the surrounding areas ask, "Is there a dentist near me who provides oral cancer screenings?" We are happy to inform them we have two dentists at our office who include oral cancer screenings as a part of dental check-ups. When examining the health of the mouth, teeth, and gums, Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley can identify early signs of oral cancer.

Learning about the signs and symptoms of oral cancer

If not diagnosed and treated early, oral cancer can be life threatening. Oral cancer includes cancer of the tongue, lips, cheeks, mouth, and throat. There are many signs and symptoms of oral cancer including:
  • Sores on the mouth, face, or neck that bleed easily and do not heal within two weeks
  • Rough spots, swellings, or bumps or lumps on the gums, lips, or other areas inside the mouth
  • Velvety red, white, or white and red speckled patches in the mouth
  • Bleeding inside the mouth
  • Mouth, facial, or neck numbness
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
  • Chronic sore throat, change in voice, or hoarseness
  • Ear pain
  • Improperly fitting dentures

Understanding the risk factors of oral cancer

Smoking, chewing tobacco, alcohol use, sun exposure, and a family history of cancer increase the risk of oral cancer. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent it. We recommend avoiding smoking or using tobacco products, limiting your sun exposure, and maintaining a healthy diet.

Scheduling oral cancer screenings

During an examination, we will check for irregular tissue and sores in your mouth. If there are signs of oral cancer, we may request a biopsy. If you have noticed any warning signs of oral cancer, do not delay scheduling an appointment with Dr. Vo or Breckley. The dentist will provide the utmost comfort during your appointment. Call our friendly and knowledgeable team at 770-423-1132 to schedule your dental check-up today.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
