Regular Screenings for Early Detection
Our Bucks County practice has purchased a state-of-the-art device called the VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System. Along with our conventional oral screening exam, which includes looking inside your mouth for any lesions that might be visible to the naked eye and feeling your neck for any suspicious bumps, we can use the VELscope to literally see beneath the surface to detect potentially dangerous growths we might have otherwise missed.
Smoking, drinking and using chewing tobacco increase the risk of oral cancers. Additionally, the Human Papilloma Virus is responsible for an increase in oral cancer cases. With oral cancer on the rise, this screening is one of the most important components of your dental exam. Drs. Hopenwasser, Faust, Scholl, and Dehbozorgi have literally saved lives by detecting early cancerous lesions.
