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.
