Oral Cancer Screening
Early Detection Of Mouth Cancer In Sacramento
Oral cancer–also known as mouth cancer–is a terrible disease that effects people across the globe. In many cases, if oral cancer is located early enough, it is highly treatable with a high rate of recovery. However, unfortunately often oral cancer is located too late for the best results, unless you screen for it.
This is why we feel it is important to have an oral cancer screening, so that you can protect yourself and your family from the horrible onslaught of full-blown mouth cancer. At Arden Dental Care near Fair Oaks and Carmichael, CA, we offer oral cancer screening services to our patients so that they can detect mouth cancer before it is too late.
To help our patients be sure that they do not have oral cancer, we offer two different types of examination for oral cancer screening in Sacramento.
The two different types of examination are:
- Visual examination | Our skilled team knows what signs to look for when it comes to oral cancer. During an oral cancer screening we will thoroughly examine your mouth for signs of this cancer, and make sure that your oral health is on track.
- VELScope | Early stage oral cancer is almost virtually undetectable by the human eye – this is where VELScope comes in. Using VELScope our team can look at tissue fluorescence and abnormal tissue developments. In as little as two minutes, our team can have a much better idea on the state of your oral health, and determine if there are signs of early stage oral cancer.
By combining these two examination types, we believe we can help our patients locate this disease early and help them have more positive end results. We are proud to be able to offer these kinds of screening services, so that our patients can have better piece of mind and stop this terrible disease in its tracks.
