Stop by the DenMat booth (#4411) at the 2013 Chicago Midwinter Meeting (February 21-23) to have a representative of the Oral Cancer Foundation, the leader in the fight against this deadly disease, conduct a complimentary comprehensive oral exam including a screening using VELscope Vx technology. The VELscope Vx, when used in conjunction with the conventional intraoral and extraoral head and neck exam, is proven effective in facilitating the discovery of mucosal abnormalities before they become visible under ordinary light. The VELscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns, patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. According to a recent article published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, traditional Clinical Oral Exams conducted “under incandescent overhead or halogen illumination…may be inadequate…Lesions may go unnoticed.” Other studies and “real world” experience show that using the VELscope Vx can lead to the discovery of a wide variety of oral abnormalities — often before they're visible to the unassisted eye. The VELscope Vx exam is easy. It just takes one-to-two minutes. It’s completely non-invasive. It’s affordable for your patients. It can help attract new patients. And it just might help you save the life of one or more of those patients! To receive a free screening or to learn more about adjunctive oral screening with the VELscope Vx, call DenMat today at 800-445-0345, or visit www.denmat.com.
