Oral Cancer Detection(VELscope)
Oral Cancer Detection Procedures from Distinctive Dentistry
According to the American Cancer Society, 100 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer every day. With early detection, the oral cancer patient survival rate is more than 80%.
That’s why at Distinctive Dentistry, we include an oral cancer screening with every exam.
A simple and effective way to detect oral cancer is through a visual inspection by a trained clinician that includes the lips, tongue and the mouth’s surrounding areas. We also have a VELscope, which is a wireless, handheld scope that uses natural tissue fluorescence visualization to help clinicians see oral mucosal abnormalities that might otherwise have been overlooked.
To book an exam and oral cancer screening, and to find out how to lower your risk of developing this form of cancer, contact Distinctive Dentistry today.
