Why is it important to get oral cancer screenings? When signs of oral cancer are caught early enough, it can be successfully treated. Statistics show that about 84% of early signs of oral cancer can be detected by a dental care professional. Rancho Dental is the perfect place to have a consultation and oral cancer screening done for you and your family. 

   The perfect way to detect a early sign of oral cancer is to see if you have any symptoms. Early signs of oral cancer include:

  • Red or white patches in your mouth
  • Spots that continuously bleed or don’t heal
  • A lump or a hard spot in your mouth
  • Numbness or pain when you bite down on your teeth 

   Though an oral cancer screening, these symptoms can be detected and treated before serious oral health problems start to occur. A screening process is a simple and painless procedure.
