When it comes to oral cancer, the sooner a problem can be detected and diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin. This can allow for more effective, less invasive treatments with a much higher chance of success. For years, dentists have used a visual screening to look for abnormalities that could be a cause for concern. At Katy Dental Arts, Dr. Sula Umansky uses VELscope® technology to detect potential issues. VELscope uses fluorescent light to find the signs of oral cancer even before symptoms start to show. If you are interested in an oral cancer screening in Katy, Texas, call 281-528-9337 to make it a part of your next visit with our dentist.
