Oral Cancer Treatment
Oral cancer can be a physically and emotionally traumatic disease to deal with. Detection of the disease at an early stage is critical for its prevention, control and treatment. It is always better to get yourself checked once in every few months to ensure we can detect cancer at the earliest stage. Fraccaro Dental Group offers oral cancer treatment in Hamilton. Our offices in Binbrook, Stoney Creek and Queenston are equipped with VELscope, an oral cancer screening system, to keep you safe and healthy. Contact us to schedule a check-up.
Our team of dentists and dental hygienists are trained to perform a thorough oral check-up. If abnormalities are detected during your check-up, VELscope will be used in conjunction with our manual or visual assessment, to visualize the tissues in your lips, mouth and upper throat. VELscope is a non-invasive, non-surgical and comfortable device.
How Does It Work?
VELscope works by exciting molecules called fluorophores deep within your oral tissues with a blue light. The healthy molecules will emit their own shades of green light. By blocking reflected blue light from abnormal tissues, VELscope enhances the contrast between normal tissues and abnormalities.
