However, around 2500 people die of mouth cancer each year here in the UK. It’s no exaggeration to say mouth cancer screening appointments save lives, allowing your dentist to spot the disease early and act accordingly. Appointments are non-invasive, pain-free and allow us to spot any abnormalities in the mouth that might need investigating.
Mouth cancer screening is included in all initial examinations and at routine appointments thereafter, depending on your age. People over the age of 55 are most at risk of developing the disease, as well as those who smoke and regularly consume alcohol. If you need support with making lifestyle changes, our team are here and ready to point you in the direction of the relevant help.
Here at Hunts Cross Dental Centre, we use the VELscope, a state-of-the-art piece of equipment, to detect abnormal tissues and lumps in your mouth. A blue light is shone into your mouth and allows us to use a special viewing instrument to have a detailed look in just a few minutes.
Whatever the result, we’re here to help and support you.
