About Oral Cancer Screening
Regular dental cleanings and exams with our New York dental team are a vital way of protecting your smile. It allows our dentist time to get to know your health and unique needs, as well as provide you with a thorough oral cancer screening. Regularly visiting our clinic also lets your dentist notice any important changes that may occur with your teeth, mouth, or gums. We also encourage educating our patients on what to look out for involving oral cancer signs. Looking out for issues such as the following will help to better protect your health:

Increases pain, numbness, or tenderness
Red or white patches
A change in the bite of the teeth
A sore or irritation
Difficulty biting, speaking, chewing, or moving the jaw
