29 October 2018 - NOVEMBER: MOUTH CANCER ACTION MONTH

November is Mouth Cancer Action Month and we are committed to raising awareness. While mouth cancers are more common in people over 40, particularly men, ANYONE can be affected. Research shows that mouth cancer is becoming more common in younger patients and in women. 

Mouth cancer can often be spotted in its early stages during a thorough mouth examination. Many people with mouth cancer go to their dentist or doctor too late. This is why we encourage our patients to have regular check ups and discuss any concerns they may have with the dentist. 

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES? 

  • Alcohol and tobacco consumption greatly increase the risk of mouth cancer. 
  • Over-exposure to sunlight can increase the risk of cancer of the lips. 
  • Recent reports link mouth cancer to the human papillomavirus (HPV) as well. 
  • Poor diet can also be a deciding factor. 

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? 

  • red or white patches on the lining of the mouth or tongue
  • a lump 
  • ulcers
  • persistent pain in the mouth
  • unexplained bleeding or numbness in the mouth
  • Teeth that become loose for no obvious reason. 

If your dentist finds something unusual they will refer you to a specialist consultant at a hospital, who will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth and throat. 

If mouth cancer is spotted early, the chances of a cure are good, and the smaller the area or ulcer the better the chance of a cure. So be #MOUTHAWARE this November and have a chat with your dentist if you have any questions.




12 September 2018 - BACK TO SCHOOL DENTAL TIPS

A dental examination is as important as regular health checks and should be a regular part of back-to-school preparations. 

Your child's back-to-school checklist should include:

  • Regular dental examinations to diagnose and treat or prevent dental problems. 
  • Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing. Head for the dental care aisle when you're out shopping for notebooks, binders and pencils. 
  • Eating healthy lunches and snacks. Cut back on sugary foods and soft drinks. 
  • Wearing a properly fitted mouth-guard while participating in organised sports, PE classes or playground activities. 

Your dentist can help with advice and guidance, so please do not hesitate to ask.
