The VELscope® Vx system enhances the way our dentists at Sterling Dental examine the oral mucosa and screen for tissue abnormalities on our dental patients in Sterling Heights. Using this advanced dental technology potentially leads to the earlier discovery of precancer, cancer or other disease processes. Early detection is one of the best mechanisms for enabling treatment success, increasing survival rates and maintaining a high quality of life.
The VELscope® Vx system is a powerful device for the discovery of mouth abnormalities such as:
- Viral, fungal and bacterial infections
- Inflammation from a variety of causes (lichen planus and lichenoid reactions, allergy to amalgam fillings, etc.)
- Squamous papillomas
- Salivary gland tumors
- Cancer and pre-cancer
- Other oral conditions
VELscope® Vx examinations can be performed in our Sterling Heights dental office during routine hygiene exams (and under normal lighting conditions) in about two minutes. Call today for an appointment to have your oral mucosa screened for abnormalities and prevent diseases.
