Your Next Dental Checkup Could Save Your Life

At Dr. Bruce E. Carter’s Lawrenceville dental practice, we always examine your mouth for abnormalities and early signs of oral cancer. Did you know that one American dies every hour from oral cancer? Only a little less than half of patients diagnosed with this condition will survive more than five years. During your regular dental checkup, we will examine your entire mouth and search for tell-tale signs that may indicate abnormal cells.

Why Choose Transforming Smiles for Oral Cancer Screenings?

Do I Have Oral Cancer?

Common signs of oral cancer include the following:

Excessive tobacco and/or alcohol use is one of the most prominent indications of developing oral cancer, but it’s important to remember that nearly 25% of cases occur in patients who don’t exhibit any known risk factors. Here in Lawrenceville, we can provide a biopsy if any potentially abnormal cells are discovered during your examination. This test can be very helpful when it comes to detecting the early stages of cancer. If our findings come back positive, a more extensive scalpel biopsy is typically recommended in order to form a concrete diagnosis.

Early Intervention May Save Your Life
