When it comes to oral cancer, early detection leads to more treatment options and better outcomes. VELscope® is a revolutionary hand-held device that helps dentists & hygienists detect potentially cancerous tissue earlier. The VELscope® system works by emitting a safe blue light that makes tissues in your mouth appear fluorescent, revealing abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye. In fact, VELscope® is the only non-invasive device clinically proven to help discover otherwise undetectable signs of oral disease.
If you have any questions about our VELscope® Cancer Screening, please feel free to speak to Dr. Cohen or one of our Lakeside Family Dental team members today.
