Oral cancer can affect any part of the oral cavity, including the lips, tongue and throat. The most common symptom is a sore that bleeds easily and doesn’t heal, or constant pain in the mouth. During your regular dental check-up sessions we perform a comprehensive oral examination, where we can identify any abnormal tissues, if there are any.
However, with today’s advances in dental technologies, VELScope has made oral cancer screening more accurate, efficient and simple. Through the emission of light and it’s reflection on normal and abnormal tissue, our Bayview Village dentist/hygienist can easily detect any abnormalities to test them further and take necessary measures. When it comes to oral cancer, early detection is critical. This is when it’s best and easiest to control, treat and prevent the cancer. Thanks to VELScope technology, we’ll be able to keep a close eye on your oral cavity.
