Oral Cancer Symptoms Kennesaw - Banner

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.

    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.
