Oral Cancer Screening
Our office is fully equipped with the latest technology to aid in the early detection of oral cancer. Oral cancer screenings are performed using the VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System, which centers on a wireless, handheld scope that uses natural tissue fluorescence to enhance the way clinicians visualize oral mucosal abnormalities that might not be apparent or even visible to the naked eye.
Recognized by the World Health Organization, the award-winning VELscope® Vx is the world's most widely used adjunctive device for the enhanced visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities, such as oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia. The technology is also backed by more clinical studies than any other adjunctive device for tissue fluorescence visualization.
SIRONA 3D SCANNING
As one of the leading manufacturers of dental technology, SIRONA provides advanced 3D scanning through the GALILEOS Compact system to help improve diagnosis and treatment planning for both patient and dentist, as well as improving communication as these images can be viewed together to discuss the patient's individual condition. At Dr. Yeager's office, we are proud to offer patients this state-of-the-art imaging technology.
The GALILEOS Compact system uses low doses of radiation to produce high quality, three-dimensional images of the entire mouth to help your dentist accurately diagnose your condition and develop an effective and thorough treatment plan. Images are taken from a full range of different angles in just a few seconds, and are helpful in evaluating conditions such as impacted wisdom teeth, periodontal bone loss and determining the source of dental pain.
