Kennesaw area dentist describes the symptoms of oral cancer

Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of the Kennesaw area welcome patients of all ages to their practice, and want to help them with more than basic general dental care. This is why they also provide oral cancer screening. Oral cancer is more common than patients realize, and early detection and diagnosis is key to overcoming it.

Oral cancer is a serious condition and should not be taken lightly. It can be diagnosed with the help of a dental professional. At 32 Dental, we educate our patients on the development of oral cancer and symptoms to look for at all stages. Patients who have oral cancer may experience one or several of the signs listed below:
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck
  • Loss of taste
  • Difficulty swallowing due to pain or soreness
  • Increased drooling
  • Dry mouth
  • Unusual changes in voice
  • Sores in the mouth that do not heal
  • White or red patches in the mouth
  • Ulcers
  • Persistent bad breath
Treatment of oral cancer will vary depending on the stage the cancer has reached as well as the location. Some patients may benefit from radiation or chemotherapy while others may be able to address it with surgical removal of the cancerous cells. Radiation and chemotherapy is often recommended in cases when there is a concern that the cancer has spread elsewhere in the body.

If you are experiencing one or more of the symptoms above and are concerned about your oral health, seek a thorough evaluation with a dentist in the Kennesaw area. The team at 32 Dental is trained to provide oral cancer screenings and can discuss with patients the options for treatment after a proper diagnosis. We encourage patients to come into our practice to discuss the benefits of proper oral health habits and the importance of regular oral cancer screenings.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
