When determining the risk of oral cancer, there are more considerations than traditional factors like smoking. Oral cancer evolves, with risk of dying rising higher than the death rates of breast cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and skin related cancers. Because of this, our dentistry office is dedicated to offering Oral Cancer Screenings during every office visit because we understand Oral Cancer prominence in today’s society. With screenings the chance of catching oral cancer is easier, preventing you from becoming a statistic.
Above and beyond visual screening we offer a high tech and better solution for oral cancer called Velscope Screening Tool. The Velscope Screening Tool allows us to spot the potential abnormalities before they become visible to the naked eye. Areas believed to be suspect are charted and addressed, recommending the proper steps to take for you. It is highly recommended the Velscope is used to screen you once a year. Spotting potential cancer before it starts is the best way to ease your mind and introduce early treatment for a better survival rate.
