VELScope Oral Cancer Screening
Blue Ash Dentist, Cincinnati Dentist
At Complete Health Dentistry, we provide you with an oral cancer screening using the VELscope Cancer Screening System. The VELscope Screening system allows us to detect any oral abnormalities by using a specialized white light source and viewing scope that helps the dentist look more closely to the tissues of your mouth. When the light glows bright green, it indicates normal tissue. If it glows a darker color, it indicates abnormal tissue. If your dentist detects any abnormalities, you may be required to schedule a second scan to see if the dark spots disappear, or your dentist may choose to perform a biopsy to make sure it’s not cancer.
