Oral cancer is a serious concern that affects many Americans each year. The sooner this cancer is detected, the greater your chances of survival. Many times, there are not obvious signs that make oral cancer easy to detect. This is just another reason why it’s so important for you to visit our dental office regularly.
At Dr. Barry Polansky’s dental office we screen all of our patients for signs of oral cancer using VELscope, an important new technology. VELscope allows us to check your mouth for any tissue abnormalities or signs of oral cancer. A special light is used to illuminate abnormal cells so they appear different from the rest of your mouth, allowing us to effectively detect any areas of concern. We use this in addition to other visual methods of oral cancer detection to ensure we’re doing all that we can to help promote healthy smiles.
The VELscope technology allows us to detect oral cancer even sooner than through other methods. We highly recommend that all of our patients have a screening once a year to ensure their oral health. Your oral health can also impact your overall health, so it’s important to take the time to care for your smile.
Dr. Barry Polansky provides complete dental care to all of our patients from our Cherry Hill dental office. We serve patients from Voorhees, Marlton, Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Audubon, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
