The American Cancer Society estimates more than 30,000 new cases and more than 7,500 deaths associated with oral cancer this year. Alarmingly, 25% oral cancers occur in people who don’t smoke and have no other lifestyle risk factors.
Oral cancer is one of the most curable diseases when it's caught early. An annual ViziLite test plus examination , provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite Plus exam is painless and fast, and could help save your life.
When oral cancer is found at the earliest stage, treatment is quicker, simpler, less involved, and more then 90% successful! When oral cancer is diagnosed in late stage, treatment is expensive, disfiguring and has a poor survival rate.
ViziLite Plus is a technology used to assist in the early detection of abnormal tissue in your mouth.
ViziLite Plus helps your dental professional see abnormal tissue that is not visible during a regular exam.
At the conclusion of a ViziLite Plus exam, following a standard visual exam, you can be confident you have received the most comprehensive oral cancer screening available.
Because we are committed to our patients oral health and early detection is key to successful outcomes, our office has incorporated ViziLite Plus into our dental checkups annually.
On your next visit, and annually thereafter, we advise a comprehensive oral cancer examination that includes ViziLite Plus.
