Oral Cancer Screening

The VELscope works through tissue fluorescence – an optical phenomenon that makes abnormal tissue show up in a different color under a specialized white light. Under this specialized white light, normal tissues will glow a bright green color, while abnormal tissue will show a marked lack of fluorescence.

Oral cancer screening through VELscope helps our dentist:

  • Identify cancer at an early stage, improving the survival rate by almost 50%

  • Identify oral cancers that are not readily visible

  • Inspect any abnormal changes in other parts of the mouth, such as the tongue
