Oral Cancer Screening

What is ViziLite?

ViziLite is a simple and reliable method of detecting pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions in the mouth.

Should you be screened?

As part of Dr. Šarić’s preventive philosophy, she recommends that all adult patients be screened using ViziLite. She believes it is a vital part of high quality dental care and notes the peace of mind and proactive approach to long term health that it provides.

What’s involved?

  • your mouth is examined visually
  • your mouth is treated with a “pre-rinse,” then lightly dried with gauze
  • a light is directed in your mouth
  • we wear special glasses and look for tissue that appears white
  • notable tissue can be stained blue for viewing in ordinary light
  • observation or referral takes place

The screen is a very simple process and is part of our initial patient examination. We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have about ViziLite. While it may or may not be covered by your insurance company, we do not permit insurance coverage to dictate recommendations for your optimal long term health.

If you know someone who would benefit from ViziLite screening, we would welcome them into our care.
