Do I need screening?

It is important that we all take advantage of screening programmes to make sure that we catch any health issues early. Mouth Cancer screening Berkshire can help with this as early detection is really important. If a case is caught early, for example, through a screening process, then it has a higher chance of being treated so that you can recover. We recommend that all of our patients go through this process so we can keep our patients safe and healthy. We can provide this care as part of our general dental checkups to make sure that you get the best care possible when it comes to your oral care.

How does screening work?

The mouth cancer screening Berkshire service works as follows, your dentist will go through your oral health history to outline any risk factors that may make you more susceptible to developing mouth cancer, before moving on to complete a thorough examination of your mouth and surrounding areas. This will include a check of the face and neck. Any abnormalities will be checked out. Your dentist will then complete a thorough check on the inside of your mouth including your cheeks and tongue. We do recommend that you come into the practice yearly for this check to keep on top of the screening process. Your dentist will then be able to refer you for more advanced help if the need for it ever arises. Your dentist will be able to work with you if you need to cease smoking, which in turn will improve your oral health. You should read onto the next section to see how and why a good relationship with your dentist can improve your overall oral health.
