Velscope® (Oral Cancer Treatment)

VELscope® Oral Cancer ScreeningOral cancer is a very serious issue that we at Plainfield Dental Care address with any patient. 25% of those who are diagnosed with oral cancer do not involve those in high risk areas, meaning non-tobacco users, excessive alcohol use and other relevant factors. We, along with the entire medical community believe the best approach is early diagnosis.

What is the VELscope® oral cancer screening?

Oral cancer is a potentially life-threatening disease and we aim to protect you from it at Plainfield DentalCare. Our VELscope oral cancer screenings are performed during your six-month examinations. We perform these examinations frequently because oral cancer is most successfully treated in its early stages. Using fluorescent technology, the VELscope can accurately detect oral abnormalities in the mouth. These abnormalities or lesions can be further tested to see if they are cancerous.

Do I need a VELscope oral cancer screening?

DR. VLAD FERDKOFF, our caring dentist, will perform an oral cancer screening using the VELscope device during your routine dental exams. This ensures that we detect any oral abnormalities as soon as possible. If needed, we will refer you to a specialist for further testing and care.
