We all know how important cancer screenings are, which is why Dr. Staller recommends receiving a dental screening for oral cancer as part of your total health and wellness. The earlier abnormal tissue is detected, the more positive the treatment, so don’t skip this life-saving step! Tobacco and alcohol use increase the risk factor, though anyone can develop the disease. We use visual and manual detection methods, along with Vizilite technology, to screen for oral cancer. Vizilite is a harmless, painless method of seeking abnormal tissues within the mouth, that uses a blue fluorescent light and aids the dentist in accurate diagnoses.
