Oral Cancer Screenings- Vizilite Plus

We are proud to announce the inclusion of Vizilite Plus to our practice.

In our continuing efforts to provide the most advanced technology and highest standard of care available to our patients, this oral-cancer screening program has been incorporated into our oral screening standard of care.

One person dies every hour from oral cancer in the United States- Late detection of oral cancer is the primary cause and mortality rate has remained unchanged for more than 40 years.

Clinical studies have determined that using Vizilite Plus after the standard oral cancer examination improves the dental professional's ability to identify and evaluate suspicious areas at their earliest stages.

Sports Drinks

Careful with Sports Drinks

If you have children who use sports drinks ( like those that promise to replenish minerals the body depletes during exercise), tell them to be sure to brush their teeth after using them.

Most people know that sugar and acidity of sodas can promote tooth decay, but some may not realize that sports drinks can also contain sugar and much more acidic than sodas.
