Mouth Cancer Screening
Cancer can affect all parts of the body including the mouth. Oral cancer kills around 2,000 people each year, which is why RP Advanced Dental and Implant Centre screens every one of its patients. Oral cancer can have different symptoms. It can affect all parts of the mouth, irrespective of whether you have your own teeth or not. It sometimes appears as a white or red patch, although more often it manifests itself as a painless ulcer that won't heal. If you ever experience any of these symptoms in between visits please contact us immediately as oral cancer is treatable if detected sufficiently early.
Oral cancer screening involves a quick pain-free examination of all parts of the mouth.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation web site has free information on mouth cancers, patient experiences as well as an online support group.
