At Bonita Grande Dental, we invest in technology to make your treatment safer, easier, and more efficient. We don't believe in a lot of gadgets, but we do believe in using the types of technology that benefit you and your oral health.
Oral cancer is quite aggressive, and this is made worse by the fact that it often goes undetected until it has advanced. As part of every dental exam at Bonita Grande Dental, Dr. Gostigian conducts a thorough oral cancer screening that includes the use of technology called a VELscope. This small instrument is designed to help us painlessly examine your mouth, lip, and gum tissue for any signs of cancerous or precancerous lesions.
Survivability rates increase dramatically when oral cancer is found in its earliest stages, and the VELscope allows us to detect problems long before they become noticeable during a visual exam.
