Oral Cancer Screening


"Oral cancer is a disease resulting from abnormal cell growth in the mouth, lips, tongue or throat. In 2003, an estimated 3,100 new cases of oral cancers were identified in Canada, and about 1,090 deaths occurred as a result of the disease.

The good news is that oral cancer can be treated successfully if caught early enough." -Ontario Dental Association

As you can see above, the key to treating Oral Cancer successfully is early detection. We use newest technology in Oral Cancer Screening, called Velscope VX.

This is how it works: "The VELscope® Vx Handpiece emits a safe, visible blue light into the oral cavity, which excites the oral tissue and causes it to fluoresce. The oral cavity can then be examined in real time, enhancing the practitioner’s ability to quickly identify suspicious tissue that may require further investigation." - LEDDental, inventors of Velscope
