Early stages of oral cancer development is often painless and physical signs may not be obvious. This is why we recommend regular visits with a dental professional or qualified medical professional which possess knowledge of the warning signs and symptoms of the disease. This also allows potential early discovery of oral cancer at it’s earliest stages when cure and survival are most likely.
