Velscope® Technology

The VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System centers on a handheld scope that is used by dentists to help detect oral tissue abnormalities, including cancer and pre-cancer.

The VELscope® Vx system is an adjunctive device which means it must be used together with and as a supplement to the traditional intra and extra oral head and neck exam.  Unlike other adjunctive devices used for oral examinations, the VELscope® Vx does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures.  In fact, a VELscope® Vx exam can be performed in the dentist’s office during a routine hygiene exam in about two minutes.

Why Early Discovery Matters?

The VELscope® device is an imaging modality which is extremely sensitive to tissue changes. Its use in everyday practice can provide timely information to dentists and hygienists to enable an earlier detection of abnormal tissues and provide better outcomes for patients.

The statistics are highly favorable: when discovered early the 5-year survival rate for oral cancer patients is about 83%. Unfortunately, most cases of oral cancer are discovered in late stages, when the five-year survival rate drops to around 50 percent.

SoproLIFE® is a device for observing the condition of hard dental tissues through the analysis of tissue fluorescence during the diagnosis and treatment of decayed areas.  Hard dental tissues will autofluoresce when exposed to SoproLIFE’s specific wavelength of blue light and a patented process within the camera is able to display in real time video how the existence of caries affects a tooth’s fluorescent signal. Affected areas are easily noted by changes in colors on the video display.
