SladeAt The Slade Dental Practice & Implant Centre we are committed to the overall health of our patients.

Part of our dental examination includes checking all the hard and soft tissues inside your mouth (teeth, gums, palate, throat, tongue, floor of the mouth and cheeks) as well as the outside of your mouth (under your chin and neck). By doing this, we can check for any abnormal or unusual changes.

Cancer of the mouth can be totally painless in it's initial stages. Early detection of any type of cancer can make a huge difference in the type of treatment is available as well as the recovery rate after treatment.

The majority of lesions or lumps within the mouth are totally benign. Any suspicious finding during your examination will be recorded and you will be informed. A referral will then be made to a hospital for further tests to be carried out. Any changes within the oral tissues may indicate cancer, but can often be minor irritations such as thrush.

The following personal habits may increase your risk of getting oral cancer.
DRINKING ALCOHOL
SMOKING TOBACCO
CHEWING TOBACCO
SMOKING AND / OR CHEWING PAAN (BEETLENUT)

If you have been previously diagnosed with mouth or aero digestive tract cancer, please inform us, so that we can tailor your oral care to suit your individual needs.
