Oral Cancer Screening

“Did you know that in North America, one person dies every hour from oral cancer?”

One of the most important benefits of regular oral exam is early detection of abnormalities within soft tissue of the mouth. These abnormalities include Viral, fungal, and bacterial infections as well as papillomas, pre-cancer and cancer cells amongst others. Early detection of oral abnormalities early leads to more treatment options with less radical and invasive treatment and better patient outcome.


During your regular hygiene visit, your dentist and hygienist use special screening devices such as the Velscope to screen and detect abnormal tissue in the mouth

Velscope, approved by Health Canada and recommended by World Health Organization uses a completely harmless and non-invasive blue light to detect such abnormalities at their early stage before they can be detected by the naked eye alone. There are no additional charges for the use of the Velscope and we include it as a part of your comprehensive oral exam

To learn more about Velscope and detection of oral cancer please do not hesitate to contact us. Our knowledgeable team will be more than happy to answer your questions and concerns.
