Velscope oral cancer detection

Oral Pathology - Cancer detection.

Oral cancer detection is the primary responsibility of the dental community. The most important step in reducing the death rate from oral cancer is early discovery.

Because we care, we introduced the VELscope powered by Sapphire at Ferrari Dental clinic. Velscope oral cancer detection allows a Painless, Fast, Non- Invasive, Positive identification of oral cancers at the Earliest Stages, and results in the best prognosis for cure and long-term survivability.

Laser Oral Biopsy

Performing biopsy with a scalpel is the standard and generally produces the most satisfactory specimen. Other techniques include the use of a needle, biopsy punch, biopsy forceps, or electrocautery device.

The advantages of a laser biopsy are:

• Incisional or excisional biopsies cause no diagnostic problems because of collateral thermal damage of the specimen from the laser.
• Minimal damage of the epithelial tissue,
• Low inflammatory reaction,
• Quicker healing process,
• Lower risk of scarring,
• Minimal bleeding,
• Minimal discomfort,
• Less postoperative pain,
• Surgery could be achieved in many cases through topical anesthetics.
