Oral cancer is a generalised term for any type of cancer found in or near the mouth and throat. It includes cancers of the lips, gums, mouth, tongue, cheeks, palate, throat, oropharynx, vocal cords, piriform sinus, hypo pharynx and pharynx.
At The Perfect Smile Studios we want to offer you the chance of early detection and diagnosis of oral pathology (anything abnormal in your mouth). We use the latest oral cancer screening technology to facilitate our diagnosis.
The assessment itself is completely non-invasive which means there is no pain. The dentist will use the relevant examination method to facilitate diagnosis and detection of anything that could potentially be abnormal. The examination and screening takes only a few minutes. Also, the results of the screening are given immediately.
The dentist will use their professional knowledge to help detect anything that is not normal.
At The Perfect Smile Studios we use a technology called VELscope VX. It is a special devise that allows the dentist to identify oral disease whilst it is still easy to treat. It makes use of a blue light that stimulates a natural fluorescence in oral tissues. This highlights disease not visible with the naked eye.
We use an advanced disease detection dye called Vizilight Plus. This uses another type of technology for oral cancer screening.
The examination is completely non-invasive and so there is absolutely no pain involved. The dentist will simply visually examine the oral tissues with and/or without the technology.
If anything is detected that the dentist deems abnormal, you will be referred for a biopsy. This involves removing a small sample of the lesion and sent to laboratories for testing. On receiving the results of the test the clinician will diagnose your condition. On most occasions it should be non-cancerous. However, it allows for you to get treatment earlier to get you back to health again.
Your clinician will provide advice according to your diagnosis.
Oral cancer screening and examination of your mouth allows for early detection. This means you are more likely to have a better and improved prognosis in the unlikely event of a cancer diagnosis.
We want to help prevent and fight cancer by detecting such pathology early. This will help to save lives. Help us to help you and book in for your screening today.
The process starts with a FREE discovery consultation where we discuss your needs and requirements with a Computerised Photographic Assessment to help you understand the possibilities.
We are at this stage able to assist you with potential options available to you. Depending on your requirements we can customise and tailor-make individual treatments plans to suit your needs and budgets.
We also use Bite Analysis technology to ensure a long lasting, comfortable and a healthy final result.

Having suffered poor dentistry for years, I had reached the end of my tether in February this year. I researched on line and was pleased to find Perfect Smile studios' website. After the first consultation I was so impressed I decided to have all the treatment recommended. I can honestly say Dr Doshi and his team are true professionals and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I really have the perfect smile.

Having researched every aspect of the Perfect Smile Studios website, I was left in no doubt that I would be in capable hands.
I started the process back in January and after my first consultation, I decided to go all out and undergo all treatment that was recommended. I was confident in what I saw, and paid for my treatment up front. Every visit to the studio, I was always greeted by the staff in a warm friendly manner which quickly put me at my ease, I knew I was in the hands of a professional dedicated team. I couldn't' fail to be impressed by the level of expertise and hard work they all applied to their tasks.
Rahul Doshi is my idea of a true professional, an artist, a perfectionist. You can put total trust in him knowing that he will come up with the perfect smile that's right for you. I cannot express enough how happy I am to have completed my treatment and have a great smile looking back at me in the mirror, and the best part is you get to carry it around with you all the time.
Thanks to everyone at the Perfect Smile Studio, you are brilliant and I will recommend you at every opportunity I get.
