At Quail Ridge Dental, we strive to provide the highest level of care possible for our patients. That includes the use of the VELscope system. It remains the first and only device in widespread use that is cleard by the FDA to help dental practitioners discover tissue changes, including dysplasia and cancer, that might not be apparent to the naked eye.
HOW IT WORKS:
By blocking the the reflected blue light, the VELscope filter enhances the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue. The VELscope can quickly and accurately detect lesions and other possible signs of oral cancer.
Soft tissues are important for us to examine and monitor. With the VELscope technology Dr. Calder can visualize tissue changes in the pre-cancerous stages to speed up diagnosis and improve treatment outcomes. Oral cancer is deadly and survivors often require disfiguring surgeries. As well with all other cancers, early detection is key and regular check ups are your best defence.
If you have not had the chance to see the dentist recently, please take the time to reach out and we will be happy to show you how things are doing and how we can help.
