VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening

At Crosslake Dental Center P.A., we are dedicated not just to treating dental issues, but also to proactive prevention and early detection. That is why we offer VELscope® oral cancer screenings, an advanced, noninvasive technology designed to enhance the early detection of oral cancer.

Understanding VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

VELscope is a cutting-edge oral assessment system that uses a special light to help detect oral tissue abnormalities, including early signs of cancer that may not be visible to the naked eye. Regular screenings are crucial because early detection significantly increases the chances of successful treatment. This screening is particularly important for those at increased risk of oral cancer, including tobacco users and those with a history of oral cancer.

What to Expect During VELscope Screening

The VELscope screening process is quick, painless and straightforward:

  • Examination: We first conduct a standard visual examination of your oral cavity.
  • VELscope Assessment: Using the VELscope handpiece, we then examine your mouth under a special blue light that highlights abnormal tissue.
  • Immediate Results: The VELscope system reveals tissue changes immediately, allowing for prompt action if necessary.

Benefits of Oral Cancer Screenings

  • Quick and noninvasive procedure
  • Helps in early detection of oral cancer
  • Can identify issues not visible under normal light
  • Provides peace of mind through thorough oral health assessment
