VELscope

A New Way to Examine for Oral Disease

VELscope - Pippin Dental Care -

VELscope: A Non-invasive Oral Cancer Screening Device

When it comes to oral cancer, early diagnosis is critical. The dentist is often the first line of defense, because abnormalities caused by oral cancer can often be spotted during a regular cleaning appointment. However, not all abnormalities are visible to the naked eye, and that’s where VELscope comes in. VELscope is a light-based detection system that makes it easier to spot problem areas in the mouth and throat.

The Benefits Of VELscope

Dr. Pippin can use the VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System to check the oral tissues during the course of a regular dental hygiene exam. It doesn’t require any dyes to use, nor does it involve any lengthy procedures. It simply emits a harmless blue light that causes oral tissues to fluoresce, and Dr. Pippin will use to look into your mouth for signs of cancerous or pre-cancerous tissues.
