The Critical Role of Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer manifests as a growth that can emerge in any area of the oral cavity, including the tongue, lips, and throat. When compared to other cancers such as breast, cervical, or skin melanoma, oral cancers present a higher fatality rate relative to the number of cases. The death rate hovers around 50%, with approximately 1,700 individuals succumbing to this disease annually in the UK alone. This staggering mortality is largely attributed to the delay in detection. Should you encounter any unusual changes or uncertainties concerning your oral health, promptly consulting your dentist is imperative. Systematic dental evaluations are pivotal for the precocious discovery of oral abnormalities.

The Journey to Becoming Smoke-Free

The path to quitting smoking is fraught with challenges and requires a firm resolve, meticulous planning, and unwavering support – all of which are provided through our dedicated website. For those contemplating a smoke-free life, we offer the necessary tools and encouragement to embark on this transformative journey.

Identifying Symptoms of Mouth Cancer

Mouth cancer can originate in various parts of the oral cavity, including the lips, salivary glands, tongue, gums, palate, and inner cheeks. Vigilance for symptoms is critical:

  • Non-healing sores on the lips or inside the mouth
  • Unexplained tooth mobility
  • Persistent oral pain or discomfort
  • Ear discomfort without apparent cause
  • Oral growths or swellings
  • Difficulty or pain during swallowing
  • Unusual white or red patches within the oral cavity
  • Any persistent mouth sores, lumps, or ulcers, irrespective of size, warrant immediate medical attention.

Testimonials

I have been with this dental practice for the past 10 years and have always received excellent care from my dentist Dr. Prasad. I would recommend this dental practice. Friendly service and a dentist who cares for his patients’ dental health .

Undine S.

Had an appointment with Dr Romain Prassad today what a lovely and kind dentist really put me at ease and is doing everything he can to help save my tooth thankyou so much ☺️

Tor M.

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

Toby R.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Suzanne L.

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Camden High Street Dental Practice. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
