Mouth Cancer Action Month at The Courtyard Clinic

Posted in: Dentistry, by thecourtyardclinic, on 19th October 2013 | Comments Off on Mouth Cancer Action Month at The Courtyard Clinic

mouth cancer

Unfortunately mouth cancer often presents with no symptoms to the patient. This is why it is vital to examine your own mouth on a regular basis and get regular check ups from a dentist who will be trained to spot early signs of the disease. This is especially important if you or a loved one is a heavy smoker or drinker of alcohol

Common symptoms include; long standing non healing ulcers, red white patches on the tongue, gums, floor of the mouth or lips. Unusual swellings or lumps in the mouth are often the first warning signs. Less commons symptoms include pain on chewing or swallowing, a sore throat that won’t go away over a long period of time (over 6 weeks), thickening of the cheek lining and unusual pain, bleeding or numbness in the mouth.

Early Detection Saves Lives… the 5 year survival rate of mouth cancer patients is 50% BUT with early diagnosis, patients have a 90% chance of survival. So if you, or anyone you know of, has any of these symptoms or questions then please call Alison on 01932 582 949 to book you free Oral Health Screening throughout October and November 2013.

It is one of the first things we notice when we meet someone for the first time, so it’s worth paying as much attention to your smile as you do to other aspects of your appearance.

We are an experienced dental team and are proud to deliver excellence, innovation and results that are second to none, using state of the art techniques in a practice dedicated to your comfort, wellbeing and most importantly, your smile.
