What is mouth cancer screening?

Mouth cancer screening is a short procedure at the dental practice that involves a thorough examination of your whole mouth, including the use of a handheld scanning device that is used to examine any lumps or lesions that you might have. This will highlight any risk factors so we can treat or refer you as quickly as possible.

It is recommended that you come in for a screening on a yearly basis. If you have any sores, lumps or long-term ulcers in your mouth, no matter how small, it is very important that you come in to have it looked at.

Why we screen for mouth cancer

Late detection of mouth cancers has resulted in a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, with about 2,700 deaths per year in the UK.

Because smoking is strongly linked with many forms of cancer and other dental problems, we always encourage our patients to quit smoking. An excellent source of information is the Mouth Cancer Foundation if you require any further information.

What do you know about composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a quick and effective way to fix minor cosmetic issues. The composite resin is hardened using UV light as soon as it’s applied. There is no drilling or injections, and can be completed in just one appointment.

Dr Brad Hawkins describes the treatment as "a great, non-invasive way to make a huge change to your smile".
