The team at Markham Associates is rallying to the call of Mouth Cancer Action to help check for symptoms of a disease that without early detection, could claim 30,000 lives over the next decade.
With over half of the population receiving a dental examination in the last two years, dental teams are in the ideal position to share information about the risks and symptoms of moth cancer with their patients, said Dr Kamran at Markham Associates.
With this in mind, we are welcoming both existing patients and new patients of Markham Associates Dentist Reading, free mouth cancer screening. The examination will involve a soft tissue check and raise any concerns the patient may have such as mouth ulcers that haven’t healed within three weeks, red or white patches or other unusual lumps or swelling in their mouth.
It is well documented that early detection saves lives said Dr Nigel Carter OBE, Chief Executive of British Dental Health Foundation.
That is why we are extremely grateful that Markham Associates Dentists in Reading has incorporated free mouth cancer screening in their routine oral and dental examinations. No matter if you attend a general check-up or come as an emergency dental patient, we always will check any symptoms or changes at the earliest possible opportunity.
Last year, 2,722 Brits lost their life the mouth cancer. As latest statistics show more than 8302 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2017, it is really important that you follow the campaign message if in doubt, get checked out.
Excessive daytime sleepiness should be taken seriously, because it increases the risk of a road traffic accident. The Department for Transport estimates that one in five road traffic accidents are caused by excessive sleepiness.
It can also cause accidents with the use of machinery and vehicles, such as cranes and forklift trucks. Treatment can improve snoring in some cases, but a complete cure isn’t always possible. Lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, are usually recommended first.
Anti-snoring devices, such as mouth guards or nasal strips, may help prevent snoring.
