What is an oral cancer screening?

When it comes to oral cancer, early detection is essential to avoid disfiguring surgeries and even death. Oral cancer is an extremely treatable cancer when found early. That is why Dr. Reagan Grizzle has invested in the latest in oral cancer detection. He wants his patients to have the best chance to beating this dangerous form of cancer.

In addition to the traditional oral cancer screening, which involves a visual assessment and physical assessment of the inside of your mouth, neck, lips, and tongue, Dr. Grizzle will use ViziLite to help detect any small or difficult to identify lesions. If any lesions are found, they will be marked for further investigation.

If Dr. Grizzle sees anything that he thinks needs to be addressed, he may recommend a biopsy to rule out cancer. Most of our patients get a clean bill of health for their oral cancer screenings, Vizilite is an extra precaution for that small percentage of people who may have oral cancer. Your health is the most important factor in our decision to offer ViziLite screenings.
