Oral Cancer Treatment in Grapevine
Every year, around 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with some form of mouth cancer. Within five years, half of the patients diagnosed become terminal.
Symptoms of oral cancer may include:
- Reddish or white patches in the mouth
- Slower healing sores
- Jaw pain or tongue sensitivity
- Difficulty chewing
- Lumps in the lining of your mouth
- Loose teeth
- Difficulty chewing or swallowing
If you experience these symptoms come to our office. These symptoms do not necessarily mean that you have oral cancer, but you may want a screening.
At Mason Dental – Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we protect our patients from oral cancer by performing regular oral cancer screenings with Vizilite. When a patient is diagnosed with oral cancer, timing is critical. The earlier a patient is diagnosed, the greater a patient’s chance of successful treatment becomes. For patients with oral cancer, early detection with an oral cancer screening can mean the difference between life and death.
