Even if you don’t smoke or drink, you still have a risk of having mouth cancer. During a routine exam, our doctors will check your gums, lips and for soft tissue that can cause spots or sores. If something looks suspicious, he or she will do a brush test to help with diagnosis.
Every day, every hour, one American dies from oral cancer and if detected early enough, is 90% curable. So if you feel sores, see tiny white or red spots, have gums that bleed easily, or have difficulty chewing, swallowing or speaking, please let our team member know!
