During your routine cleaning exam every 6 months, we do a complete evaluation of your soft tissues and we screen for oral cancer or any other suspicious lesions requiring follow-up or a biopsy.
We now have access to a screening technology used around the world: the Velscope. The Velscope is a visualization instrument that emits blue light, painlessly and harmlessly. It is a non-invasive method and does not require rinsing or coloring. Under blue light, suspicious lesions will appear irregular and darker. This instrument is an invaluable aid in the detection of precancerous lesions.
