520_velscope-diagramWhen you visit our dental office for a regular dental cleaning and checkup, we will provide an oral cancer examination as well. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Falduto, uses the VELscope oral cancer screening device to screen for signs of oral cancer. The VELscope oral cancer screening device causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce by using a blue-spectrum light. Areas that have suffered trauma or disease will fluoresce differently, allowing Dr. Falduto to identify areas that may be affected by oral cancer or other abnormalities. We may refer you to a specialist if we find areas that require further examination or treatment. We invite you to contact our dental office in Lincoln Park, New Jersey to learn more about the VELscope oral cancer screening device. We are committed to helping you stay in the best of health!
