Oral Cancer Screening

At Portale Dental, PA, we offer oral cancer screenings in Ridgefield, New Jersey. Usually offered as part of your normal six-month visit, oral cancer screenings allow Dr. Joseph Portale to scan your mouth for any abnormalities. Learn more today by calling our office at 201-945-5777 and scheduling a visit with our experienced dentist today.

One of the most important things about cancer treatment is early detection. Unfortunately, most cases of oral cancer are only treated once they become more serious. That is why our dentist and team offer oral cancer screening to help keep your mouth (and body) healthy. When we refer to oral cancer, we include cancers of the lips, tongue, palates, cheeks, throat, and sinuses. As part of your normal dental exams, our dentist will conduct an oral cancer screening to help detect any early signs of cancer.

Common symptoms of oral cancer include:

  • A sore or abscess in the mouth or on the face or neck that does not heal within three weeks and bleeds or discharges easily
  • Numbness or unexpected soreness in the face, neck, or mouth
  • Consistent earaches
  • Repeated sore throat or trouble swallowing, as if something is stuck at the back of the throat
  • Rough spots or bumps on the gums, lips, or other soft tissues of the mouth
  • Red-and-white speckled patches in the mouth
  • Difficulty closing your mouth, swallowing, speaking, or chewing.

If you suspect that you have oral cancer or if you would like to schedule a screening, contact our dental office today and schedule an appointment with our dentist.
