Oral Cancer Screening
VELscope Oral Cancer Scan
Oral cancer can easily be diagnosed with an annual oral cancer exam, and effectively treated when caught in its earliest stages.
Oral Cancer Screening Process
At Maple and Mapleview Dental we can give you the peace of mind you deserve with oral cancer screening. During the visual part of the examination, the dentist and dental hygienist will look for abnormalities and feel the face, glands and neck for unusual bumps. The innovative Velscope system will then be used. This powerful non-invasive tool is proven to be effective in checking for oral abnormalities that are often not visible to the naked eye.
Common Regions for Oral Cancer
There are many different places in the oral cavity and maxillofacial region in which oral cancers commonly occur:
- Salivary Glands
- Throat (Oropharyngeal Region)
We provide a complimentary oral cancer screening as part of your New Patient Comprehensive Exam.
