Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) June 21, 2016
Dr. William Greider, experienced dentist in Fort Myers, FL, now utilizes VELscope® technology to help detect symptoms of oral cancer. The VELscope® is a non-invasive way to identify areas of concern, and takes only minutes to complete.
Oral cancer is estimated to kill one person in North America every hour. This dangerous form of cancer claims more than three times the amount of victims claimed by cervical cancer, and is often overlooked until it has advanced to more serious stages. When detected early, most types of cancer in the oral tissues are highly treatable, but late detection is unfortunately very common. The VELscope® gives dental professionals a highly accurate tool to detect early signs of cancer in the oral tissues. Rather than relying on vision and palpation alone, it operates by using a safe and effective fluorescent blue light to clearly show differences between abnormal and normal oral tissues. Dr. Greider looks through the special lens to detect changes on the cellular level that would not be visible to the naked eye.
Patients who receive regular oral screenings with the VELscope® have a greater outlook of detecting cancer before it becomes it advances. Using the advanced cancer detection system, Dr. Greider can determine whether the patient has any abnormalities on their lips, upper throat or any other oral tissues. The entire screening process can be completed in less than two minutes, and it does not require the patient to rinse with any special rinses or stains.
Patients who are concerned about oral cancer and maintaining optimum oral health are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Greider, who is a highly respected dentist in Fort Myers, FL.
