VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Technology in Boca Raton

We Use VELscope to Perform Cutting-Edge Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral Cancer Screenings with VELscope

One North American dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. This disease claims over twice as many lives as cervical cancer. Although that may sound scary, the good news is that with early detection you can substantially reduce your risk of a negative prognosis and maximize your chances of making a full recovery. Lifeway Dental is proud to provide some of the most advanced diagnostic systems and we offer oral cancer screenings in Boca Raton with VELscope®.

What is VELscope®?

VELscope® is an innovative, oral assessment tool used to detect abnormalities in the mouth as lesions, tumors, and other signs of oral cancer. This wireless, hand-held device emits a specialized blue light that helps highlight irregular tissues and signs of disease that are not visible to the naked eye.

Why is Using VELscope® Important?

While the VELscope® system can help clinicians discover several types of abnormal tissue in the oral cavity, it is perhaps best known for its ability to assist in the discovery of oral cancer and precancer. The superior blue light of this system stimulates the mucous membrane that lines the inside of the mouth which light up in easily visible shades of green, yellow, and red. This helps us see oral issues much earlier than traditional methods, and in some cases, even before they are visually present.

Benefits of Using VELscope® for Cancer Screenings

  • Early detection
  • Non-intrusive
