A mouth cancer screening in Banbury at Amsel & Wilkins is vital to inform our patients about the actual status of their dental health, particularly if they are anxious about certain symptoms and signs that could be associated with oral cancers.

We offer mouth cancer screenings to any of our patients to set their mind and emotions at ease, and to plan for further dental therapy as may be needed.

Mouth Cancer Screening in BanburyDo they take a long time?

Mouth cancer screenings can be done within five minutes. Even during a short visit, we can gather a lot of information through a comprehensive visual and manual examination. Additional time may be required but this is on a case-to-case basis and not always necessary.

Oral cancer can be the cause of any changes in face shape and other possible symptoms, such as facial paralysis, unusual patches or growths on the lips, tongue, gums, and throat. As well as these symptoms, dizzy spells, unexplainable weight loss, lack of appetite, difficulty in swallowing and swollen lymph nodes could all be signs of something a little more sinister occurring in your mouth.

Mouth cancer screening before symptoms appear can greatly help patients who are nervous about the possibility of having cancer, and can put their mind at rest.

How the screening is performed

To perform an oral cancer screening, our dentist will firstly take your medical and dental history. This will include an evaluation of your lifestyle habits such as smoking, as this can encourage the development of growths in your oral cavity or its nearby areas such as the head or the neck.

Next, we will carefully but comprehensively run their hands over your neck, mouth area, face, head and areas where your lymph nodes are found, to determine if any lumps or abnormal growths are present.

Should we find anything unusual, an additional screening may be recommended. We may discuss your situation with another medical health professional to find out the cause of the abnormalities. If oral cancer has been ruled out, we will proceed to address any issues encountered during the screening and aim to resolve them as soon as possible.

Teeth Bleaching in BanburyDoes it take a long time?

Your appointment will usually take around one to two hours and after this you will leave our practice with a whiter, healthier looking smile. Zoom! teeth bleaching is an accelerated and simple tooth whitening procedure.

After a thorough teeth cleaning, a powerful bleaching agent created from concentrated peroxide will be applied to your discoloured teeth. This strong dental gel is then allowed to cure under the Zoom! light. During this time, the bleaching gel slowly dissolves stains that are attached to the teeth that have contributed to the yellowing or staining. If your teeth become sensitive after your Zoom! procedure, a special dental paste can be applied to reduce any sensitivity or discomfort.

After your in-chair treatment has been completed we will give you whitening trays and gels to take home to enable you to continue to get the best possible results.

How long will it last?

How long your Zoom!! whitening will last will depend on your social habits and how well you look after your new smile. The Zoom procedure whitens both the interior and exterior of teeth that respond well to whitening treatments. Avoiding sugary drinks and other foods and drinks that can stain your teeth is also a good choice if you want to keep your smile as white as possible. Simple changes in your diet and continuing regular oral hygiene and professional cleanings will prolong the results.
