ViziLite® oral cancer screening

At Jewell General Dentistry, we take pride in offering the ViziLite Plus exam, a powerful tool that aids our doctors in identifying abnormal tissue with the potential to evolve into oral cancer. During a ViziLite screening, a specially designed light is applied to oral tissue treated with a rinse solution, illuminating any abnormal tissue for our dentist to scrutinize.

Why Choose ViziLite Plus?

  1. Early Detection Advantage: According to the American Cancer Society, oral cancer boasts a 90% curability rate in its early stages. Unfortunately, 70% of cases are diagnosed at late stages (III and IV), resulting in a lower five-year survival rate of 57%.
  2. Comprehensive Screening: Incorporating ViziLite Plus into your regular dental check-ups increases the chances of detecting potential oral cancer lesions early. This screening procedure complements visual examinations, offering a comprehensive approach to oral health.
