Enhanced oral cancer screenings with VELscope® technology
While most people are unaware of the numbers, oral cancer claims a life every hour of each day. As a matter of fact, more than 50,000 adults across the United States will get diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal cancer this year, and close to 10,000 people will succumb to the disease.
However, good outcomes are possible. It all depends on early detection and care. For years, the typical screening for oral cancer involved carefully palpating the head and neck and performing a thorough visual inspection in and around the oral cavity at dental checkup visits. Although this approach is helpful, new technology to enhance the detection of any tissue abnormalities indicative of oral cancer is available.
At Brockport Smiles, we use VELscope technology to facilitate the detection of oral mucosal abnormalities and pre-malignant dysplasia that would go unnoticed with visual inspection alone. Using this remarkable handheld device, we can painlessly and quickly illuminate the mucosa inside your mouth and distinguish healthy tissue from lesions and spots that indicate the presence of oral cancer or pre-cancerous changes.
Proactive care that supports oral health and wellness
As skilled and experienced providers of care, we do all we can to prevent the development of dental disease and detect other harmful conditions that can affect your oral health and overall well-being as early as possible.
Patient care and comfort are our top priorities. To find out more about our comprehensive range of services or schedule an appointment for care, give us a call today.
