The survival rate of late stage oral cancer is only 32%. Found early, the chance of surviving oral cancer increases to 83%. The VELscope Vx is used to assist in diagnosing any intraoral abnormalities including oral cancer and pre-cancerous conditions. The exam uses a blue light, takes less than 2 minutes, and there are no rinses, stains or discomfort.
Air-Flow therapy uses a pressurized warm water spray in combination with soft powders to remove surface stains, plaque and food trapped between teeth.
Isolite is a single use device that helps our patients during long procedures by constantly suctioning fluids, providing a soft cushion to rest their mouth, forming a barrier to protect the back of the throat, and lighting the mouth for our clinical team to perform procedures with ease.
Our digital scanner allows us to view dental x-rays quickly and store them on the computer for quick reference. We are also able to enhance the images and better diagnose dental problems.
