Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.
We utilize VELscope technology to perform oral cancer screenings. The oral cancer screening is completed with a blue spectrum light that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions. For more information regarding VELscope, please click here.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
