Early detection of oral cancer can make all the difference when it comes to surviving the disease. At Ponciano Dental Clinic, we understand the severity of this disease and we would never wish it upon any of our patients. Hence, we've added the VELscope Technology to our office.
The Velscope is the leading device for oral cancer screening. It literally allows us to see beneath the surface of oral tissues to detect abnormal growths, including cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions, that might be missed with the naked eye. In just two minutes, with no rinses, stains or discomfort, the VELscope examination visualizes abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth and upper throat.
For our patients' oral health and well-being, we've made it a requirement that oral cancer screening, using VELscope is part of every dental cleaning or check-up you get.
