Oral Cancer Screening

01

At TruDentistry of Tigard, we take oral cancer screenings very seriously. 

That is why we use the VELScope VX for all of our cancer screenings.  The VELScope VX is one of the most reliable oral screening instruments available today. 

02

VELScope VX is a remarkable system that helps Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Weinberg to see abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of the lips, mouth, and upper throat area. 

The simple scan takes no more than 2 minutes and there is absolutely no discomfort.

The VELScope VX is a blue light instrument which stirs up the molecules deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues.  In turn, those molecules known as fluorophores, emit their own light, fluorescence, in shades of green, yellow, and red. The proprietary filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light, and by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.  This provides an excellent evaluation of your over-all oral health.
