Mouth cancer affects thousands of people every year in the UK. However, with prevention and early detection, successful recovery rates are much higher.
Mouth cancer screening is a routine examination where we closely check your face, lips, throat and neck, as well as inside your mouth. We routinely screen for oral cancer at Bamber Bridge Dental Care whenever you come in for a check-up appointment.
Tumours can commonly appear on the tongue or floor of the mouth as well as:
Signs that you should not ignore include:
While these signs are not necessarily symptoms of mouth cancer, it is advisable to get a medical consultation as soon as possible.
During an oral health assessment, we can advise you on the actions you can take to reduce the risk of mouth cancer. These include stopping smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and eating a balanced diet.
Have been going to this practice for years and can't think of anywhere else lovely staff and everyone else that work there thank you
All staff were polite and helpful, Christine Brooks gave me some excellent advice which I will definitely follow!
Everyone is very welcoming , and the dentist was very gentle, even though I had a root canal filling. Very professional too, can’t ask for anymore.
Great dentist, friendly efficient team. Been there for 4 years and very satisfied. (And I still have most of my teeth)
We trust Christine to look after our teeth. She is such a lovely lady and very professional. Her and Kath work so well together.
Just amazing. I've genuinely never felt so relaxed visiting a dentist!
Very good experience with Victor today - he has an excellent manner and explains everything in understandable detail. Would definitely recommend to others
A visit to the dental hygienist is not a particularly pleasant experience but Kathryn at Bamber Bridge Dental Care was excellent! She explained the process, was very kind, patient and pleasant. So all in all, a good experience, thank you.
Been a patient of Mrs Brooks for decades, she is professional and always puts me at ease. The reception staff are friendly and efficient. A clean and welcoming practice
Very positive experience with Dr Chow. He took time to explain the work he was going to do, and it was completed without any discomfort. The practice seems very modern, using the latest equipment and the staff are friendly.
Have received excellent care from Mrs C Brooks at this Dental Practice and her earlier base for over 27yrs. She and her staff are patient,thorough,welcoming and explain issues clearly. Top marks!
Excellent Dental Practice
Excellent service from the minute you walk in until you leave. The receptionists are helpful and friendly. The standard of cleanliness is outstanding. My dentist and her assistant are very reassuring as they know I'm a nervous client. Would definitely recommend Bamber Bridge Dental care.
