Dr. Robert A. McCulla, Dr. Zachary McComb and our entire dental team care about you and your overall health, which is why we provide oral cancer screenings at Turlock Dental Care.
Oral cancer is a very serious health condition that can hinder your overall health. Our team does our best to help you prevent oral cancer, and we are happy to provide an oral cancer screening in Turlock, California, if it is needed.
During your oral cancer screening, our dentists will visually inspect your gums, lips, check, tongue and throat for any signs of cancer. We will also examine your neck, the palpitation of your jaw and your medical history. This is a way to check for oral cancer and treat the following symptoms:
- A sore that will not go away in your mouth
- Tenderness, pain or numbness in your lips
- Red or white patches in your gums
- A lump in your mouth
- Crust or small eroded area
- Difficulty chewing, swallowing or speaking
- The repositioning of your jaw
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, we ask that you come into our office and meet with our dentists as soon as you can. We also recommend attending regular dental visits to allow our dentists to identify and treat oral cancer in the early stages of development. Contact us today at 209-667-7889 to get started!
