VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer can be a potentially deadly type of cancer but if detected early, the survival rate for patients with oral cancer is 83%.
Late detection of oral cancer, however, gives patients only a 32% chance of survival.
Your Vancouver Dentists Use The VELscope System
The VELscope is a safe and revolutionary handheld device that shines a blue light and highlights abnormal oral tissue and lesions that could indicate oral cancer. VELscope doesn’t use any dyes or rinses and is completely non-invasive and pain-free.
How Long Does an Exam Last?
A VELscope exam will typically take no more than 5 minutes and has no side effects. In this short time, your oral health care professional can investigate any abnormal oral tissue and help prevent not just oral cancer but fungal infections and bacterial growth.
Book Your VELscope Appointment
Early detection is Key in the fight against oral cancer so contact our friendly dental staff and book your VELscope appointment for your peace of mind and excellent oral health. Please feel free to ask us any questions about VELscope, online or on the phone.
