Oral Cancer screening exam

Our office uses the latest technology to screen all adult recare (check-up) patients for beginning signs of deep inflamation to pre-cancer lesions. We use the Velscope imaging device that points a pure blue light at all the layers of cells that make up the skin lining the mouth. That light makes the tissue layers fluoresce if the tissue is healthy-it appears Granny Apple Green in the scope. Unhealthy tissue appears darker and thus must be examined more thoroughly to determine whether the dark area is anything from inflammation to pre-cancer.
