The team at Boutique Dental 23 is getting behind Mouth Cancer Action this November to help check for symptoms of a disease that claims around 2,000 lives each year.
Organised by the British Dental Health Foundation and sponsored by Deplan , Mouth Cancer Action Month aims to increase public awareness of the risk factors , signs, symptoms and encourages everybody to visit their dentist regularly to help spot the disease.
Mouth cancer can often be spotted in its early stages by a dentist during a mouth examination and, if caught early , there is a 90% chance of survival. Dental teams are in the ideal position to share information about the risks and symptoms of mouth cancer with their patients.
The mouth cancer check will involve a quick and painless examination as well as discussing any concerns that patient may have such as mouth ulcers that haven’t healed within three weeks, red or white patches or other unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth.
