                                                      THAT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

Why VELscope?

The VELscope system helps dentists to visualize abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth, and upper throat.

In just 2 minutes, with no rinse, stain or discomfort, a VELscope examination lets dentists improve their assesment of your overall oral health.

Make sure that your mouth is as healthy as it can possibly can be. The next time you visit your dentist or hygienist, ask for a VELscope exam.

How Does the VELscope Work?

The VELscope's blue light "excites" molecules ( called "fluorophores" ) deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues. In turn, those fluorophores emit their own light ( fluorescence), in shades of green, yellow and red. The VELscope proprietary  filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light, and by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.
