Oral Cancer Screening
We want to make sure that your mouth is as healthy as it can be, at each oral health assessment we check all of your soft tissues using Velscope.
Velscope is a tool which assists in the discovery of oral abnormalities. The Velscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns and these patterns are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease.
More than 6000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year so discovering soft tissue abnormalities is extremely important in the fight against oral cancer.
Because the Velscope assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.
