Achieving optimal dental health is something everybody strives for. Why, then, do so few of us end up having it?
Aside from the edible treats and delicious dishes we delight in from day to day, the fast-paced, go-go-go lifestyle of the modern world hardly allows many of us to take the time necessary to stick with our daily dental duties. Unfortunately, missing even a handful of days flossing or brushing now can lead to some big dental issues later in life.
At Mary E. Gregory, D.D.S. Family Dentistry, Dr. Gregory and her team of trusted dental experts can help you avoid the pitfalls of poor dental care, and even provide ways to prevent dental disasters from onset in the future. One of the most innovative ways Dr. Gregory can keep your dental health on the rise is through a new high-tech dental device called the VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System, which can help identify otherwise-unseen issues like oral cancer before it becomes chronic.
How Does It Work?
The VELscope Vx has a wireless, handheld scope that can detect natural tissue fluorescence indicating oral mucosal incongruities that are key signs of a developing oral cancer.
The VELscope Vx has even been relied upon by dentists across the nation to uncover other conditions like:
- Infections of all varieties
- Squamous papillomas
- Salivary gland tumors
- Many more
How Safe Is It?
Considering that the award-winning VELscope Vx has already been cleared by the Federal Drug Administration and has been applauded by the World Health Organization, its safety is by no means a pertinent concern.
