Oral Cancer kills one person, every hour of every day in the US alone. The death rate for oral cancer is higher than that for cervical cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, laryngeal cancer, cancer of the testes, and endocrine system cancers such as thyroid, or skin cancer (malignant melanoma). This is primarily not because it is hard to treat, but because it is found so late in its development.
New Screening Technology
Due to our concern for your OVERALL HEALTH & WELLNESS, we have invested in a NEW Oral Cancer Screening Technology- the VELscope System. It allows the direct visualization of human tissue fluorescence and the changes in fluorescence that occurs when abnormal tissue is present.
The VELscope System emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity, allowing us to immediately view the different fluorescence responses to help differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue. In fact, the VELscope System is the only adjunctive device cleared by the FDA and Health Canada to help discover oral mucosal lesions that might not be apparent or visible to the naked eye.
How can I straighten my teeth without making it obvious to everyone around me? Invisalign offers an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a custom made clear fabricated mouth piece to help align your teeth to their correct positions. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing them.
- Straight teeth in the same time or shorter time as traditional appliances (helpful with overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbite, and underbite)
- Clear aligners that are subtle and difficult to notice
- Much more comfortable than braces
- You can take them out whenever you need to– to eat, to drink, for a big social occasion or whenever you need a break
- Custom made just for your teeth
- A beautiful smile
