At Riverdale Dental in Toronto, we use VELscope technology in the early detection of pre-cancer, cancer, or other disease processes.
VELscope uses tissue fluorescence to reveal cellular, structural, and/or metabolic activity changes that are often directly related to disease processes occurring inside the tissue. This may assist in the early discovery of pre-cancer, cancer and other diseases.
Early detection is vital for improving the rates of treatment success and maintaining a high quality of life.
This exam can be performed during routine hygiene exams in approximately two minutes.
