Oral cancer is one of the most curable diseases
when it's caught early. That's why the
ViziLite Plus exam has been developed. ViziLite Plus uses
technology that has proven successful in identifying soft tissue
abnormalities in other areas of the body. A ViziLite Plus exam
is particularly important if you are at increased risk for
developing oral cancer
An annual ViziLite Plus exam, in combination with
a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral
screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral
cancer. The ViziLite Plus exam is painless and fast, and could
help save your life.

small areas of decay or to prepare a tooth for the placement of restorations or
sealants. This procedure works with an air compression device that
delivers, under pressure, tiny particles of aluminum oxide to the surface of a
tooth structure to blast away decay. It is similar to sandblasting a
building to clean it.
Air abrasion is good
with early decay and helps to preserve tooth structure. Discomfort is minimized
and many patients do not need to any anesthesia. Children and adults who
are fearful of needles, noise or the vibration of a regular dental handpiece may

allow us to see fractured enamel, gum recession, fracture lines in teeth and
breakdowns of restorations, and lets you see what we see. This helps us to
diagnose and recommend better treatment plans for
