The ViziLite® system provides your dentist with an additional and effective mechanism for identifying, evaluating, monitoring and marking abnormal lesions in the mouth that may be indicative of the dysplastic changes that are associated with the development of oral cancer. Since early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer can significantly improve the outcome of treatment, ViziLite is considered an important adjunct to periodic, conventional head and neck examinations.
A painless and fast oral cancer screening with the ViziLite Plus system may be combined with your regular checkup visit. After rinsing your mouth with a special cleansing solution, the dentist will simply pass the ViziLite Plus light over the tissues in your mouth. If there are any abnormal changes to the mucous membranes lining the mouth and throat, the area will appear in a different color from the surrounding healthy tissues. In the event that anything is detected, further diagnostic assessments will be recommended as needed.
