ViziLite oral cancer screenings

At Edward Dwyer, DDS, we offer ViziLite oral cancer screenings to help in early detection of oral cancer.

Oral cancer strikes an estimated 34,360 Americans each year and more than 25% will die from the disease. However, oral cancer is one of the most curable diseases when it’s caught early. That’s why Edward Dywer, DDS, offers ViziLite oral cancer screening in addition to our comprehensive dental exams.

Vizilite uses technology that has proven successful in detecting oral lesions that might develop into oral cancer. An annual ViziLite Plus exam, in combination with a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure that can help keep you healthy.

A ViziLite exam is performed immediately following a regular visual examination.

How it works:

  • First, you will be instructed to rinse with a cleansing solution.
  • Next, the overhead lighting will be dimmed.
  • Then, Dr. Dwyer will examine your mouth using ViziLite Plus, a specially designed light technology to identify abnormalities.
