VELscope Vx - State of the Art Oral Cancer Detection Technology

Velscope VXVelscopeVXOur office is excited to introduce the latest in oral cancer detection technology. Oral cancer are aggressive growths that can invade the tongue, roof of the mouth, gums and cheek. In the United States, an estimated 36,450 new cases of cancer of the oral cavity are diagnosed annually. Risk factors that increase the incidence of oral cancer include alcohol, tobacco, human papilloma virus (HPV).

Our office uses a device called the VELscope Vx which provides enhanced vision when it comes to detecting abnormal tissue areas that might not be visible to the naked eye, including oral cancer and premaligmant dysplasias (pre-cancerous lesions) and FDA approved.

Come visit our office to have your mouth screened for oral cancer and take a positive step towards improving your overall oral health!


Intraoral Camera

Intra Oral image

Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. This allows us to let you see what we see.


MicroDentistry

MicroDentistry means finding decay as early as possible so that treatment can be done with minimal removal of natural tooth structure. Restorations (fillings) are the smallest possible, esthetically pleasing, and long-lasting.


Air Abrasion

Air Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat, vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise technology and usually removes less tooth structure for a filling than a drill would.
