Attending a yearly mouth cancer screening

02/11/2021

Protecting your healthBlog

As life continues to become somewhat like a rollercoaster spinning on through the days leaving little time to consider possible health implications our daily habits may have on our life, it is all too easy to forget about the important check-ups which rely on our own dedications to our health. Whilst an email, text or phone call may try to prompt you with dental check-up, the overall burden lies with you, the patient.

So why does a yearly mouth cancer screening, Burnham, mean so much to your dental team?

Whether a smoker, tobacco chewer, or none of the above, having a screening for cancer within the mouth is highly important, so as to help reduce the potential development of any health problems. This quick and simple check over during a regular check-up or on its own can help reduce the impact of any findings, eliminate the problem from spreading further and help create a plan for the future whether it be a treatment or procedure to follow.

Honesty with your dental team

Although as with any habit, being told what to do with your own life and health generally does not encourage you to just quit, our dental team will always work with you and advise you on the better options for your oral health. When it comes to smoking, in most cases there are many tell-tale signs given off, such as an odour to the breath or clothes, or a staining to the teeth which has developed over time. Despite this, it is always important to be honest with our dental team so that they can monitor the effects of your habit closely on the impact of your body. Whilst all our patients will be advised to quit their smoking habit, we understand that this does not always happen and therefore having mouth cancer screening Burnham on a regular basis allows us to monitor your oral health and flag up any unusual changes within the mouth which may or may not be related to cancer.

Nothing to lose, only things to gain

When visiting the dental practice for an appointment, it may feel as though that time could be better spent with the family or doing the important job you love so much. No matter what, this brief moment once or twice a year to keep your oral health on track, is worth every second and the one check we should all ensure is carried out. Each simple but effective appointment not only helps keep your dental health on track, but also ensures that any changes to your oral health are spotted early, ensuring that we put our best foot forward to tackle and eliminate the problem further. This early prevention method can be the difference between receiving a basic treatment, to undergoing extensive procedures on an ongoing basis, which is why our dental team at Dental Surgery Burnham works hard with our patients to ensure that each mouth cancer screening Burnham process is carried out. After all, we want to have you in the best of health as well.
