If you are looking for periodontists who offer comprehensive mouth cancer testing, turn to the dedicated professionals at North Point Periodontics. Oral cancer is a serious disease affecting many Americans (roughly 40,000 new diagnoses this year). If you are a tobacco user (cigarettes or smokeless tobacco), you are in primary danger of developing oral cancer. In the past, the death rate associated with oral cancer has been particularly high due to the cancer being discovered late in its development. At our periodontic practice, we are trying to change this trend by offering thorough and regular oral cancer screenings.
For state-of-the-art oral cancer tests, you can count on the caring dentists and staff from North Point Periodontics. Our practice has invested in advanced technology for the early detection of oral cancer. Our investment in advanced technology represents a long-term investment in your oral health. With the expertise of our dentists and state-of-the-art technology, you can expect excellent results.
One of the dangers of oral cancer is that in its early stages it is painless and can go unnoticed. However, there are some symptoms that you should be aware of including a sore or discolored spot in your mouth that does not heal, a lump or mass in your mouth or throat, pain or difficulty swallowing, chewing or speaking and persistent hoarseness. If you have any of these symptoms, please contact our Alpharetta Oral Cancer Screenings Experts at North Point Periodontics today to schedule an oral cancer screening. We look forward to caring for your oral health.
