Cancer screening

For peace of mind

Mouth cancer is a malignant growth which can occur in any part of the mouth, including the tongue, lips and throat. In the UK more people die of mouth cancer every year than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma, however it doesn’t have to be this way – mouth cancer is one of the most curable diseases when it is caught early.

At the Dental Health Centre in Witham, we genuinely care about the health of our patients and use all of our routine examinations to check for signs of mouth cancer. On top of this, we also perform an annual ViziLite Plus exam which further improves our ability to detect precancerous and cancerous abnormalities. This exam is quick and painless - after rinsing your mouth with a cleansing solution we will examine your mouth using a specialist light technology called ViziLite. If a suspicious lesion is detected it will be marked with a blue dye.
