Oral Cancer Screening
When oral cancer is found early, treatment can be successful 82% of the time. Unfortunately, when compared to the survival rate of other cancers, the survival rate of oral cancer has not improved greatly over the last 30 years.
SEE YOUR COSMETIC DENTIST EARLY
Because early detection is a key to survival, it is important to see your cosmetic dentist regularly. An annual screening exam called ViziLite Plus with T-Blue, used in conjunction with a routine head & neck examination performed by your cosmetic dentist, can help find abnormalities that could lead to cancer. That’s the kind of screening that could save lives.
How Does It Work?
- STEP 1 – Cosmetic Dentist will examine your mouth & look for any abnormalities.
- STEP 2 – Next you will rinse with a solution that will help your cosmetic dentist conduct the ViziLite Plus exam.
- STEP 3 – Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth using ViziLite Plus.
- STEP 4 – If a suspicious lesion is detected, it will be marked with T-Blue, a blue dye, and documented.
What will my cosmetic dentist see?
Most of the time your cosmetic dentist will conduct a thorough oral cancer screening examination and will see that everything looks completely normal…That’s GOOD NEWS!
However, there may be times when your cosmetic dentist identifies something that looks abnormal. At that point, your cosmetic dentist may ask you to come back in a few weeks to follow up or may refer you to an oral surgeon for a biopsy.
