There are 640,000 new cases of oral cancer each year.
As dentists we have a duty as one of the only people in the world to every check your mouth for any signs of oral cancer every time you visit.
Although by looking we have been trained to spot signs of early lesions that could develop into something more dangerous at Alexandra Road we take it one step further and include an advanced VELscope Oral Cancer Scan for all of our patients.
The VELscope scanner is the most
powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral
abnormalities. The VELscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the
soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues
fluoresce in distinctive patterns, which are visibly disrupted
by trauma or disease. Using the VELscope, a wide variety of oral
abnormalities can be discovered which is often before they are visible to the
Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer. Because the VELscope assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.
