VELscope Oral Cancer Screening in Metrotown
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Near You
Oral cancer is on the rise throughout North America and early detection is the key to its prevention. The VELscope is a device that offers a painless and non-invasive method to assist us in screening for abnormal tissue in the mouth. We take the oral health of each of our patients very seriously – the VELscope is yet another example of Acu Dental’s investment in both your oral and overall health.
We provide VELscope oral cancer screenings in Metrotown to detect abnormalities before any visible symptoms are shown. It is a handheld device that shines blue light onto your tissues. When the light comes into contact with abnormal tissues, the tissues will appear very dark. Healthy tissues will appear bright green. The VELscope technology allows us to detect abnormalities in the early stages that we cannot see with the naked eye.
The screening will take no longer than two minutes but is very effective in detecting indicators of oral cancer. Early detection can drastically increase your survival rate.
