Oral Cancer Screening
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we conduct oral cancer screenings on all new patients and during routine dental exams.
Research indicate that the incidence of mouth cancer is rising, and that early detection greatly enhances the likelihood of recovery. At approximately 2,700 deaths per year in the United Kingdom, mouth cancers have a higher death rate per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer, or cutaneous melanoma. Screening for oral cancer is a straightforward procedure conducted at a dentist office.
A comprehensive study of your oral health history to identify any potential risk factors.
A complete visual and tactile examination of the exterior of your mouth, head, and neck.
A comprehensive inspection of the mouth’s interior, including the inside of the cheeks and under the tongue.
Any inconclusive findings will be referred to a consultant with specialised knowledge.
