Risk Factors for Oral Cancer

What is the Velscope?

Velscope is an early oral cancer detection device. It utilizes a safe blue light technology and a special green optical filter for the clinician. Typically healthy tissue will have an apple-green glow under this special light. Areas of concern may appear darker. Typically we offer the Velscope exam to all adult patients and especially to those having higher risk factors for cancer. The Dental Laser treatment center is proud to offer our patients this service and hopefully lower the cancer statistics by utilizing the Velscope technology.
