Mouth cancer may appear in different forms and can affect all parts of the mouth, tongue and lips. Some its symptoms are oral sores and a white patch on the surface of the mouth. Habits such as drinking, smoking as well as over-exposure to sunlight are the common causes of the disease.
It is important to make sure that your mouth is safe from cancer. At Staplehurst Dental Practice, we look at more than just the teeth – we also check the rest of the mouth to determine early symptoms of illnesses. We do this through a comprehensive mouth cancer screening.
Understanding Mouth Cancer
Any part of the body can be affected by mouth cancer. One of the biggest worries that we probably have is the fact that we, a friend or a family member may acquire the disease.
Mouth cancer is a huge concern for many, because it does not show any pain until the late stages; this is why it is important to visit the dentist regularly.If a person, however, already has oral cancer, its treatment will be more straightforward and minimal when diagnosed early.
