Fight Oral Cancer
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.
What is 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.
