VELscope & Vizalite

Diagnostic Tools – VELscope & ViziLite Oral Cancer Screening

Since our focus is on total oral health, we perform routine oral cancer screenings yearly on all our patients and have incorporated the latest and most efficient Oral Cancer Screening tools into our practice.  Both the VELscope system and the ViziLite system have been cleared by the FDA and Health Canada to be used as an adjunct to a standard oral cancer examination by improving the ability to identify suspicious areas in the earliest stages.  Early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. This exam will be offered to you annually at your hygiene appointment. It is performed immediately following a regular visual examination and is quick and painless.
