There’s More to Oral Health Than a Beautiful Smile

When you visit our office, your primary concern is the health and appearance of your smile. But there’s more to a healthy mouth than a beautiful smile. At Wayne Dental Care, we’re concerned about the entire scope of your oral health and wellness.

In addition to regular cleanings and exams, we offer oral cancer screenings using the VELscope system. This examination allows us to provide a thorough assessment of the mucosal tissue of your lips, mouth, and upper throat in less than two minutes.

How does VELscope work?

VELscope is a non-invasive oral cancer screening device. It uses a blue light that “excites” fluorescing molecules deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues. The molecules emit shades of green, yellow, and red. Then, the VELscope filter reflects light and enhances the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

Why is oral cancer screening important?

Finding oral cancer early allows for more treatment options. Oral cancer screening is used to identify precancerous or cancerous lesions at an early stage. Because the sooner these lesions are detected, the easier they are to remove and treat.

What are some of the most common symptoms of oral cancer?

  • A mouth or lip sore that bleeds easily or doesn’t heal
  • Red or white sores in the oral cavity
  • Swelling or lump in the cheek, jaw, or neck
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, or speaking
  • Sudden or unexplained changes in the way your teeth fit together
  • Persistent mouth pain
  • Recurring sore throat or hoarseness
  • Numbness in the mouth or chin

What are the highest risk factors for oral cancer?

  • Heavy tobacco use of any type
  • Heavy alcohol consumption
  • Significant sun exposure, which increases the risk of lip cancer
  • Contracting the human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • A weakened immune system
  • Previous oral cancer diagnosis

How can I prevent oral cancer?

  • Avoid all tobacco products and consume alcohol in moderation
  • Limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen on your skin and lips
  • Maintain a healthy, balanced diet and bake, boil, or steam food
  • Get regular oral cancer screenings

Remember an oral cancer screening at your regular dental checkup is one of the best tools to aid in the detection of oral cancer. Oral cancer screenings are a precautionary measure. If any abnormalities are detected, further screening and testing will be required.

YOUR TOP-RATED & NEW FAVORITE DENTIST IN WAYNE, PENNSYLVANIA...

The folks at Wayne Dental Care are fantastic. They have a friendly staff who are always welcoming, fantastic doctors (I've been a longtime patient of Dr. Handel) that make long and tedious procedures much easier to tolerate. From cleaning to implants, this is a terrific place. They are also fantastic about dealing with emergencies. I highly recommend.

I have received great care here over the past 14 years, both preventative and emergency. The team is very professional and caring. Most recently, Dr. Brenner made time for me on an emergency basis to fix a broken tooth. He did a great job, and I left feeling 100 percent better than when I arrived.

I've been a patient at Wayne Dental Care for over ten years, and several of my family members are patients as well. The dental hygienists and front desk staff are terrific, friendly and helpful. I am always provided with a comprehensive written treatment plan for anything not covered by insurance, so I understand my costs. I always feel welcomed when I come in the front door!

Accommodated my very fluctuating schedule and paid close attention to details of recommended services. Pre-checked recommended services for coverage and priced out in advance. Also discussed claiming as much in services as possible within the calendar year in order to take advantage of my annual benefit allowance. Very Satisfied with quality of service and attention to detail.
