|When you notice something that feels a bit off in your mouth, there are a few things you can do. First, you can ignore it, but this is never a good idea. Next, you can make an appointment with your dentist, but this may take a while.
Finally, you can call our offices, and this is the best option out of the three. By calling us, we can look at what's going on, and if we see the signs of a problem, we can get the process started of diagnosing the problem with you right here.
Something Off In Your Mouth May Be the Sign of Oral CancerBy simply noticing something off in your mouth, you may have stumbled across something that is actually an early symptom of oral cancer. Your dentist will likely have the right credentials to look at what is going on within your mouth and provide you with a preliminary diagnosis. However, they are going to call us to have the biopsy done anyway.
By coming to us first, you can get the preliminary diagnosis you were hoping for, plus we can get the process started for the biopsy and confirmation of what is actually going on within your mouth. That way, you get to eliminate a step of the process, making it to where you can know what's going on sooner.
Don't ever scoff off anything new and different in your mouth. Most early signs of oral cancer are not painful, so don't expect to only come in and get seen if something hurts. Call our office today and let us get you in and seen as soon as possible. From there, we can figure out what the next step would be, if you need one.
