Early Detection with Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

Regular oral cancer screenings play a crucial role in safeguarding your health, and at THE DENTIST, we provide comprehensive oral cancer screenings in West Jordan, Utah. If you notice any unusual changes in the soft tissues of your mouth or for routine screenings, schedule an appointment with Dr. James L. Johnson by calling our office at 801-255-7800.

Why Oral Cancer Screening Matters:

Oral cancer symptoms can sometimes resemble those of other health issues, making screenings essential for early detection. During your regular checkups, we perform a thorough series of tests to identify any potential areas affected by cancer. This screening encompasses various regions, including the lips, tongue, cheeks, throat, sinuses, and the floor of your mouth. Signs of oral cancer may include:

  • Soreness and irritation
  • Lumps or rough spots
  • Tenderness or numbness in the mouth and lips
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Red or white speckled patches inside the mouth
  • Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  • Ear pain
  • Dramatic weight loss

Stay Ahead with Regular Screenings:

Oral cancer, if left undetected and untreated, can escalate into severe and life-threatening disease. Our oral cancer screenings are designed to help patients avoid this potential struggle and maintain optimal oral health. During your checkup, our dentist will inquire about your overall health and carefully examine your mouth for signs of lumps or sores that may indicate oral cancer. If necessary, we will promptly initiate appropriate treatment based on the screening results.
