VELscope Vx is a dental technology designed to screen your mouth for soft tissue abnormalities, such as:
- Oral cancer
- Bacterial infections
- Evidence of trauma
- Dysplastic tissues
The advanced imaging and screening process this technology features can often detect abnormalities and developing conditions in your mouth before they become visible to the eye or have the opportunity to cause damage to your oral structures. This makes it easy for our dentist to accurately diagnose the condition and develop a customized treatment plan. By diagnosing your condition in the earliest stages of development, your chances of a successful treatment are greatly increased.
We are particularly concerned with checking for oral cancer, as it is one of the most common forms of cancer that can develop. An increasing percentage of this cancer is being discovered in patients with no known risk factors, and we recommend that everyone over the age of 18 be screened annually. If you have significant risk factors, we recommend that you receive a soft tissue assessment at each of your routine appointments.
We invite you to contact our office today to make an appointment and learn more about VELscope Vx soft tissue assessments. Our dentist and team are dedicated to helping you improve your oral health and enhance your quality of life.
