WE ARE NOW OFFERING a new oral cancer screening for our patients,
called the ViziLite Plus exam.
All patients are routinely screened for oral cancer at their dental visits,
but this new method
uses a special chemical and light combination
to allow us to "see" what we can't see with the naked eye.
THIS IS GREAT NEWS BECAUSE traditionally,
by the time we can see something suspicious,
it is often too late. The key to treating cancer is early detection.
25% OF ORAL CANCERS OCCUR in people who don't smoke
and have no other lifestyle risk factors.
Increased incidence in sexually active young people has been seen lately,
due to the human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer.
AND DON'T WORRY, there's nothing uncomfortable about it!
Ask for your ViziLite Plus exam today.
