VELscope for the detection of oral cancer

It’s important to detect and treat oral cancer as early as possible. In just a few minutes, your dentist can detect signs of the disease during your routine check-up. When detected early on, oral cancer can be treated easily.

Because oral cancer can develop in many areas of the mouth, dentists use VELscope to diagnose the disease early. A blue light is projected into the mouth, showing anomalies that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye as darker patches.

Every year, this procedure saves many lives—in just a few minutes! Find out more about oral cancer detection during your next appointment. We’ll be happy to carry out a preventive check.
