I would like to

A mouth cancer screening is a quick procedure to ascertain any changes in the soft tissue of the mouth, lips, and tongue.

During your dental check-up, your dentist will inspect your face, mouth, and neck for red or white patches, lumps, and mouth sores that won’t heal.

If you become aware of changes in your mouth or have any concerns, talk with your dentist. It may help save your life.

Why do I need to be screened?

The older you get, the greater your chance of developing mouth cancer. Those who are middle-aged or older should consider adding this swift examination to their yearly oral care plan.

Are there any other factors I should be aware of?

Yes, there are several behaviours that can contribute to the emergence of mouth cancer.

If you partake of any of the following:

  • Being a moderate to heavy drinker
  • Chronic sun exposure
  • Long-time smoker

What are the signs of mouth cancer?

  • Tenderness or numbness in the mouth or lips
  • Difficulty swallowing, chewing or speaking
  • A mouth sore or lesion that doesn’t go away
  • Red or white patches
  • A change in the way your teeth fit together
  • A lump, rough spot or eroded area
