Changes in the Mouth

by dentaldesign, on 3rd December 2019 | 0 comments

Be mouthaware and check for changes in the mouth:

  • Head & Neck: Do both sides look the same? Look for any lumps or swellings that are only on one side of the face
  • Cheek: Look out for red, white or dark patches. Put your index finger inside the cheek & your thumb on the outside. Squeeze the cheek to check for any lumps, tenderness or ulcers.
  • Mouth: Run your finger on the roof of the mouth to feel for any lumps. Repeat on the floor of the mouth.
  • Lips: Pull down the lower lip & look for any sores or change in colour. Use your thumb & index finger to feel the lip for lumps or changes in texture.
  • Neck: Feel & press along the front & sides of the neck. Can you feel any lumps?
  • Tongue: Look for any changes in colour or texture of the surface. Check the sides for any swellings or changes in colour or ulcers. Examine the underside
