Mouth Cancer Screening

Mouth cancer screening appointments are paramount in catching potential symptoms and signs early, to increase chances of recovery.

We understand the “C” word can be daunting, but we can’t stress how important these check-ups are. Our compassionate, friendly and professional team are there to support you whatever the outcome of your screening appointment. Mouth cancer screening is performed as part of your routine dental check-up.

Mouth cancer screening appointments: what to expect

We will perform a visual examination, looking in your nose and oral cavity to check for any lumps, lesions or ulcers in the mouth and neck, that could present a risk. Even if you have only very small lumps in your mouth, or you can’t see anything you think is a cause for concern at home, it’s still vital that you come in and see us at least once a year. We will be able to examine parts of the mouth you can’t see looking in the mirror at home.

Other signs we will look for include:

  • Red, white or mixed red and white patches on the side of your tongue and gums.
  • Ulcers that persist for more than three weeks
  • Teeth that become loose in the apparent absence of gum disease.
  • Unusual-looking lesions.

Reducing your chances of developing mouth cancer

It’s no secret that smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are both lifestyle factors that drastically increase a person’s chances of developing mouth cancer. Here at House of Dental, we’re on hand to help you get the right support to make healthy changes to your lifestyle, with a view to reducing your susceptibility to mouth cancer.
