Discovering Dental Implants: A Modern Solution to Missing Teeth

June 10, 2024

Your oral health is just as important as your overall well-being, and it's crucial to be proactive when protecting it. Did you know that the American Cancer Society estimates over 50,000 adults in the United States will get diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal cancer this year? Unfortunately, 10,000 of these individuals are expected to lose their lives due to this disease.

Comprehensive Care for a Healthy Mouth and Body

At the office of Smiles 4 A Lifetime, we prioritize your smile and overall health. We understand that early detection is key when it comes to managing oral cancer, which is why we perform thorough screenings as part of our comprehensive dental checkups. By closely examining the tissues in and around your mouth, we can detect any potential issues before they progress into something more serious.

While maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding harmful habits are essential for minimizing the risk of oral cancer, regular dental checkups that include a comprehensive oral cancer screening play an equally important role. In fact, many cases of oral cancer are first detected during these routine visits.

Stay Alert to Changes in Your Mouth

It's also essential to be aware of any changes or lingering symptoms that may occur within your mouth. If you notice any of the following, don't hesitate to inform us during your next dental visit:

  • Mouth ulcers or lesions that don't seem to heal
  • Unusual lumps or thickened areas
  • Red or White patches
  • Persistent swelling of unknown origin
  • Painful swallowing, a painful tongue, ear or neck ache
  • Constantly feeling like something is stuck in your throat
  • Tenderness or numbness in mouth or lips
  • Loose teeth
  • Jaw pain or stiffness

Trusted Care for a Radiant Smile

While the above symptoms can sometimes represent benign and treatable issues, it's vital to be certain. At the office of Smiles 4 A Lifetime, we provide comprehensive care to support healthy, beautiful smiles and to protect your overall well-being. To learn more about our services and how we can help you maintain optimal oral health, give us a call today.

Your smile is an important part of who you are, and it's essential to take care of it. By staying proactive and scheduling regular dental checkups that include thorough oral cancer screenings, you can ensure your teeth and gums remain in the best possible condition for years to come.
