The Dangers of Oral Cancer - Part 2 - Symptoms

Friday, April 15, 2016
Around 42,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with oral or throat cancer, according to the American Dental Association. Since early detection provides the best chance for successful treatment, regular oral cancer exams are essential.
Here are some symptoms to look for. If you have any of these symptoms, and they persist for more than two weeks, be sure to schedule an appointment at our Delaware, OH office as soon as possible.
• Persistent mouth irritation
• White or red patches
• Tenderness, numbness or pain in the lips or mouth
• Lumps, rough spots, crusty or eroded areas
• Difficulty in speaking, chewing, swallowing, speaking or moving your tongue or jaw
• Changes in the way your bite (the way your teeth fit together)

From Our Patients:

Dr. Lechner has been my dentist for as long as he's been in Delaware. He was the first dentist to recognize that my having had rheumatic fever meant that I should take an antibiotoc prior to a dentist visit. From that time forward, I have not come down with any sort of illness following a dentis appointment. Thank you for all these wonderful years of healthy teeth and general good health!
