Dr. Stephen Henry is extremely conscious of oral cancer, and he does his absolute best to identify, diagnose, and treat the problem with an oral cancer screening in Foster City, California.
For your oral cancer screening, we use a type of technology called VELscpoe®, which is an accurate and precise way of identifying oral cancer. This is a wireless, handheld scope that discovers oral mucosal abnormalities with natural tissue fluorescence visualization. It is a machine that will find the small signs in your mouth that could easily be overlooked. It also identifies:
- Inflammation in the gums
- Viral, fungal, and bacterial infections
- Squamous papillomas
- Oral cancer and pre-cancer
- Salivary gland tumors
- Other oral mucosal conditions
This is a very beneficial machine that we are extremely proud to use. We will perform the screening of your regular dental exam; however, if you are currently worried about the condition of your oral cavity and would like an exam, we welcome you to contact our office at 650-341-5656. We want to help you in any way we can, and we are happy to evaluate your oral health to ensure your safety.
