At Riverdale Dental in Toronto, we utilize VELscope technology in the early detection of pre-cancer, cancer, or other disease processes.
VELscope uses tissue florescence 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 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.
Unlike other oral cancer screening devices, the VELscope does not require dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, this exam can be performed during routine hygiene exams in approximately two minutes.
