During these unprecedented times all dental surgeries are unable to provide the normal care that patients are used to.  Our practice will remain open during normal working hours for triage to provide advice to patients, and to prioritise needs and arrange appointments accordingly. 

If you are calling outside of normal hours and have an urgent dental problem, please consider if this could wait until the following day or over the weekend rather than accessing the out of hours services. Call the surgery on (01482) 506004 for assistance and information.

If calling out of hours and the problem is extremely severe please contact the out of hours service through NHS111.

If your dental problem includes uncontrolled bleeding and a swelling that is causing breathing problems this is an emergency and you should go to A&E.

What to Expect

Mouth Cancer

31 TONGUE EXAM.png

Most people have heard of cancer affecting parts of the body such as the lungs or breasts. However, cancer can occur in the mouth, where the disease can affect the lips, tongue, cheeks and throat.

Anyone can be affected by mouth cancer (oral cancer), whether they have their own teeth or not. Mouth cancers are more common in people over 40, particularly men. However, research has shown that mouth cancer is becoming more common in younger patients and in women. There are, on average, almost 6,500 new cases of mouth cancer diagnosed in the UK each year. The number of new cases of mouth cancer is on the increase.

Over 1,900 people in the UK die from mouth cancer (oral cancer) every year. Many of these deaths could be prevented if the cancer was caught early enough. Most cases of oral cancer (mouth cancer) are linked to tobacco and alcohol.
