The teem 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.
Mouth Cancer Action Month runs throughout November and is an annual campaign organised by The British Dental Health Foundation sponsored and supported by Denplan to help raise awareness of the symptoms and those most at risk.
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 throughout November and December
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.
