Our office uses the VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System to help us detect oral cancer. VELscope is an oral examination system for the detection of abnormal soft tissue that can be an early warning sign of oral cancer. Using a revolutionary safe blue light technology that is completely pain-free, we are able to view different fluorescent responses that help differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue and reveal conditions that should be investigated further.
VELscope facilitates the early discovery and visualization of abnormalities in your mouth, including oral cancer. In one or two minutes, with no rinses or stains required, a VELscope system examination helps Dr. Hopper assess your overall oral health.
