VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening Burlington, Ontario
Besides treating cavities, Guelph Line Dental also helps to fight oral cancer. One of the best ways to fight and beat oral cancer is with early detection. If oral cancer is detected early enough, a patient’s survival rate is 83%. However, if it’s detected in the later stages, a patient’s survival rate is only 32%.
To detect oral cancer, we use the revolutionary VELscope System. The VELscope system uses a blue light to detect any abnormal oral tissues. The light is completely safe, non-invasive, and painless. There is no need to use any dyes or rinses. The entire process only takes a few minutes and allows the dentist to check for abnormal oral tissues so that they can be effectively treated before they can develop into cancer cells.
Having an oral cancer screening is one of the best things you can do for your peace of mind and oral health.
