However, the good news is that, with early detection, patients can make a full recovery and live a healthy life. Regular mouth cancer screening appointments are essential for early detection and, here at Westbridge Dental Practice, our compassionate team will support you whatever the outcome of your appointment.
We will ask you a few general questions about your overall health and examine the inside of your mouth to check for red and white patches, as well as sores. Your dentist will also check your throat and neck area for lumps or abnormalities. Depending on the findings of the examination, you may be referred for a biopsy.
We are always keen to discuss any possible lifestyle changes that can be made, in order to lower patients’ chances of developing cancer. Whether it’s cutting down on alcohol, quitting smoking or altering your diet, we’re here to support and encourage you to make positive changes.
