RenovaSmiles is proud to announce we have new technology in the office’s called the VELscope that allows us to do a tissue assessment. It allows for the Doctors and Hygienist to see oral abnormalities that are not always visible to the naked eye. We do this exam on all of our patients because we care about your overall oral health.
The VELscope® Vx, uses natural tissue fluorescence to discover abnormalities in the oral mucosa. The VELscope is an extremely effective aid for discovering and defining the extent of a wide range of mucosal abnormalities, including oral cancer. Importantly, VELscope helps you discover problems before they can be seen under ordinary white-light conditions. Unfortunately, oral cancer is often discovered in the late stages when the prognosis for the patient is poor.
Why Is the VELscope® Vx System Important?
VELscope Research – Impressive New Findings Used in conjunction with the conventional intra- and extra-oral exam, VELscope provides visual information that cannot be acquired in any other way, and helps discover problems that may not be apparent to the naked eye. According to the SEER, The National Cancer Institute, database:
Found early, oral cancer’s five-year survival rate is 80% to 85%
Found late, oral cancer’s five-year survival rate is only about 50%.
Exam cost: $15.00 (until November 15th)
Prevention is key to leading a healthy and overall happy life.
