VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is the sixth most common malignancy but when caught early, is one of the most treatable. What you might not know is that 25% of oral cancers occur in people who do not smoke and have no other lifestyle risk factors. Virtually everyone is at risk for oral cancer including you. Our practice has incorporated VELscope Plus, a technologically advanced oral cancer screening tool that has been proven successful in identifying precancerous and cancerous abnormalities.
VELscope Plus is a simple technology that helps Dr. Juarez, Dr. Lent, Dr. Lindskog, and their team identify oral lesions at their earliest stages of development. Quite simply, early detection can save lives. When premalignant lesions or oral cancers are found early, treatment is simpler, less invasive, and more than 90% successful. The VELscope Plus exam improves the examiner's ability to identify, evaluate and monitor abnormal areas that are difficult to see under conventional lighting.
Please call us for an appointment and, remember, your regular trip to the dentist could save you more than a few cavities. It could also help save your life.
