We know that oral cancer claims one life every hour in the United States – and the survival rate has hardly changed in the last 40 years. This disease is of great concern to our practice because oral cancer is very curable when discovered early.
That’s why our practice has incorporated Vizilite Plus, a technologically advanced oral screening tool, to identify things that could lead to cancer at their earliest stage.
Vizilite Plus screens for oral lesions that may lead to cancer just as mammograms screen for breast cancer, PAP smears screen for cervical cancer, and PSA tests screen for prostate cancer.
Vizilite Plus is a chemical - luminescent light that helps the dentist see what he might not otherwise see. The procedure is simple, painless and non-invasive. We recommend performing this exam annually
