Oral Cancer Screening Near Briarcliff Manor, NY
Early Detection Is Essential to Your Oral Health
Over 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral and throat cancers each year, and as with any type of cancer, the chance of recovery relies in part upon how early the cancer was first detected. As part of your general dental exam and dental cleaning, Dr. Lerner performs a thorough screening for signs of oral cancer. For oral cancer screening near Briarcliff Manor, NY, Dr. Lerner uses VELscope technology. VELscope allows us to differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue, earlier and easier than ever before.
How VELscope Works
VELscope technology allows the molecules in your cells to absorb the light energy emitted and it’s re-emitted as a fluorescent glow. By using special optical filters in the handpiece, we immediately see the difference between normal and abnormal cellular activity.
Using VELscope is quick, painless, and allows us to screen for oral cancer with increased accuracy and efficiency. Today, there’s no need to risk your health for oral cancer. Ask about implementing the VELscope exam into your routine checkups for true peace of mind.
