Painless Oral Cancer Screening for Early Detection and Handling
A healthy body includes a healthy mouth. Although no one wants to consider the possibility of having oral cancer, the disease is on the rise. Especially among people 20 – 50 years old who are mostly non-smokers. Our office provides routine oral cancer screenings that are quick, painless and relatively inexpensive. A standard screen takes just 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the signs and symptoms of oral cancer can be detected with a trained medical eye or felt with the fingers.
A new, proven VELscope™ Enhanced Oral Assessment also helps to identify and photograph cancerous and precancerous growths that may evade detection under white light. This is a painless and quick tool that is very useful in spotting cellular changes and abnormal tissue growths before they become cancerous. These screenings allow you to be more educated about your own health and have an easier treatment experience if a diagnosis indicates signs of trouble.
More than 25 million VELscope examinations have been performed by over 15,000 dental practitioners in 23 countries. Patients who have undergone a screening with this advanced technology have been overwhelmingly positive about their experience during the exam and the level of detail it provides.
