Cancer screening is an important part of routine dental and overall health care. While your dentist will always check for any visual abnormalities, a simple screening can detect problems before they become apparent.
VELscope for Oral Cancer Screening
The VELscope system helps visualize abnormalities in the tissues of your lips, mouth and upper throat. In just two minutes, with no rinses, stains or discomfort, a VELscope examination lets our dentists improve their assessment of your overall oral health.
How Does the VELscope Work?
The VELscope’s blue light “excites” molecules (called “fluorophores”) deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues. In turn, those fluorophores emit their own light (fluorescence), in shades of green, yellow and red. The VELscope’s proprietary filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light, and by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.
The next time you visit our team, ask for a VELscope Oral Cancer Screening. It’s only $25 and could potentially save your life.
