At Dental Care of Oakbrook, we are not only reactive about your teeth, we are proactive. We care about your health and your future. By using the VELscope hand-held device, we are able to provide early detection for oral diseases, including pre-cancer and cancer. Used along with a physical examination, the safe blue light that the VELscope emits into the oral cavity allows Dr. Kimet to discover any mucosal abnormalities before they become visible under ordinary light. These abnormalities can show signs of oral cancer as well as other oral diseases. Though it is not a stand-alone diagnostic test, the VELscope is the only non-invasive adjunctive device clinically proven to help discover oral disease.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening is a part of the Dental Care of Oakbrook oral exam and recare plan for each of our patients.
