Oral Cancer Screening

Cancer can invade almost any tissue in the body, including in the oral cavity. Mouth and throat cancer affects over 50,000 people each year in the U.S., and thousands of people die from these diseases annually. Oral cancer has effective treatment if it is detected early. At Majestic Smile Studio, we offer oral cancer screening as a preventive care service at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.

Oral cancer often does not have any symptoms until it is in the later stages. You could have cancer spreading inside your mouth or throat and show no signs of disease. However, there are symptoms that could alert you to possible oral cancer. These symptoms include:

  • White or red spots on the soft oral tissues
  • Sores inside the mouth that do not heal
  • Chronic sore throat
  • Lumps in the mouth or throat
  • Mouth pain
  • Swelling or pain in the jaw
  • Trouble chewing or swallowing

Oral cancer often appears on the tongue, lips, tonsils, gums or floor of the mouth. When you have any abnormalities in the mouth or throat that do not go away, you should see a dentist or doctor for an exam.

Detecting Mouth Cancer Early

Oral cancer screenings are one of the most effective ways to identify signs of the disease early. Dr. Gutierrez can carefully examine the inside of the mouth for any changes in the tissues. Special lights can highlight abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. If there are any indications of oral cancer, further testing can be performed for a diagnosis.

Screenings for oral cancer can be performed during your routine checkups. This is an important aspect of preventive oral care and another reason not to skip your regular dental checkups.

Your health and wellness are important to us at Majestic Smile Studio. We provide advanced preventive oral care for patients at our dental center in the Anaheim and Yorba Linda, CA, area. To schedule your next checkup, contact our team and book your appointment.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
