As well as checking for dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease, we also monitor our patients for early signs of mouth cancer during their routine check-ups.
Males over 40 are at greatest risk of developing mouth cancer, particularly those who smoke or and drink alcohol. However, mouth cancer can affect anyone of any age, gender, and ethnicity.
The early signs of mouth cancer can include:
A cancerous growth can develop anywhere in the mouth, including the tongue, lips, and gums. Your dentist will visually and physically examine your mouth, neck, and head for anything suspicious, giving you peace of mind.

Very pleased with Elm Dental Surgery! For over 10 years - excellent care. Professional and Friendly
I've been scared of the dentist for a very long time, but toothache forced me to make an appointment. A friend recommended Elm House to me and I'm so glad she did. The dentist I saw today was so patient and kind, explaining everything perfectly. Actually all the staff were great, including the receptionists. I will definitely go back and I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thank you Elm House, my faith has been restored.
