All new patients, and any current patients whom are at higher risk for developing oral cancer will receive a comprehensive screening during your appointment. We will review your medical history and use the Visilite System to evaluate your mouth. This system incorporates a special light technology to allow us to evaluate any tissue changes that may be occurring on the surface, and more importantly, subsurface. Fluorescent dye when illuminated shows us tissue changes that are normally invisible to the naked eye. Oral cancer is curable in 80-90% of cases if caught early. While tobacco and alcohol are the primary risk factors we look for, 27% of oral cancer arises in patients with no identifiable risk factors. Visilite allows us to screen and identify any changes at the earliest possible stage. Please come in for your screening. It only takes 5 minutes and could save your life!
