Our Newsletter – Keeping in touch….

22nd February 2021

Hi There!, Welcome to our February 2021 newsletter. We hope you have been ok through the past (cold!) month, and that you and your loved ones are safe and well. This month we will be sharing some important advice about mouth cancer. We also share how we can help you fix chipped or broken teeth, as well as our usual updates and news.
Mouth Cancer, things you should know….

Mouth cancer, also known as oral cancer, is where a tumour develops in a part of the mouth. It may be on the surface of the tongue, the inside of the cheeks, the roof of the mouth (palate), the lips or gums.

Tumours can also develop in the glands that produce saliva, the tonsils at the back of the mouth, and the part of the throat connecting your mouth to your windpipe (pharynx). However, these are less common.

Symptoms of mouth cancer

The symptoms of mouth cancer include:

  • mouth ulcers that are painful and do not heal within several weeks
  • unexplained, persistent lumps in the mouth or the neck that do not go away
  • unexplained loose teeth or sockets that do not heal after extractions
  • unexplained, persistent numbness or an odd feeling on the lip or tongue
  • sometimes, white or red patches on the lining of the mouth or tongue These can be early signs of cancer, so they should also be checked
  • changes in speech, such as a lisp

See a dentist or GP if these symptoms do not get better within 3 weeks, particularly if you drink or smoke.

What causes mouth cancer?

Things that increase your risk of developing mouth cancer include:

  • smoking or using tobacco in other ways, such as chewing tobacco
  • drinking alcohol
  • infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV) – HPV is the virus that causes genital warts

Preventing mouth cancer

The 3 most effective ways of preventing mouth cancer from happening, or stopping it from coming back after successful treatment, are:

  • not smoking or using tobacco in other ways, such as not chewing tobacco
  • ensuring you do not drink more than the recommended weekly guideline for alcohol
  • eating a healthy, balanced diet that includes fresh vegetables (particularly tomatoes), citrus fruits, olive oil and fish

The NHS recommends you drink no more than 14 units of alcohol a week. If you drink as much as 14 units a week, it’s best to spread it evenly over 3 or more days.

Here at Moonlight Dental Surgery, we screen every patient for mouth cancer during their dental exam. If you ever have any concerns, please do no hesitate to get in touch.
