Oral cavity and Oropharyngeal cancer can be detected early with routine dental exams. Dr. Holliday and our dental hygienists will always check for any sign of cancerous lesions when doing a routine exam.
If you believe you are at higher risk for oral cancer we offer Visilite and can check at any time.
ViziLite® TBlue Annual Oral Cancer Screening System helps oral healthcare professionals identify, evaluate, monitor, and mark abnormal oral cell lesions suspicious for pathology.
This includes precancerous and cancerous cells that may be difficult to see during regular visual exams. A clinical study1 has shown that the use of ViziLite® TBlue after a conventional visual examination resulted in no false-negative outcomes, proving that ViziLite® TBlue identified every lesion that had precancerous or cancerous cells.
The same study further proved that ViziLite® TBlue also significantly reduced the number of false-positive lesions identified during standard visual examinations thus limiting the number of biopsies that may have normally been performed.
