VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System
More than 50,000 people in North America will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone. As the sixth most prevalent cancer globally, oral cancer is often diagnosed in late stages, where patient prognosis is poor. However, diagnosing oral cancer in its earliest stages improves the survival rate to 83%, with routine oral health screenings being a critical step in the detection of the disease.
Doctors Lake Family Dental is pleased to be at the forefront of oral cancer screening by incorporating the VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System into their comprehensive oral examination protocol.
The VELscope Vx utilizes tissue fluorescence technology to aid in the early visualization of oral abnormalities, including oral cancer and precancerous lesions, that may not be visible with the naked eye. Backed by expert clinical research, the VELscope is the market-leading technology for enhanced oral screening.
By incorporating the VELscope Vx into their standard oral health screening protocol, our doctors provide their patients with an additional tool to help ensure that any areas of concern are not overlooked.
