A Handheld Device Revolutionizing the Oral Cancer Screening Process
What is a Oral Cancer Screening?
A visual inspection for oral cancer is conducted during a regular cleaning routinely. In many cases, abnormalities can be found just through this examination. Once a year, we recommend a screening using a VELscope. The VELscope is a device designed for oral cancer screening. It utilizes a blue light which illuminates the molecules within the tissue for clear examination. With the prevalence of oral cancer, prioritizing careful screenings is important and can have a significant impact on treatment success.

After a short visual examination, we will utilize the VELscope which highlights molecules within your tissue. The blue light is a helpful tool for inspecting your mouth. The entire process is pain-free and fast.
If any abnormalities or lesions are noticed, we will discuss the next step for examination. Whether a biopsy or simple observation is the next step, your care will be prioritized. Even if the lesions are cancerous, thankfully, treatment early on has a strong success rate.
