Let's take a look at some of the tools of the trade that @Toothlife.Irene has her eye on!
VELscope Vx from LED Dental
First up is the VELscope Vx from LED Dental. (Irene Iancu aka @Toothlife.Irene herself uses this one in her practice at @ToothlifeStudio!)
As a handheld device, the VELscope Vx system enhances the visualization of mucosal abnormalities, such as oral cancer and premalignant dysplasia. This system uses tissue fluorescence, rather than reflectance, and does not require any dyes. VELscope Vx examinations are performed during routine hygiene exams under normal lighting conditions. Photo documentation is easy to integrate and share with patients or other dental specialists using a proprietary app that can connect to the device by clipping into the housing.
ViziLite PRO® Oral Lesion Screening System
ViziLite PRO® is another medical device used to screen for abnormal tissues in the mouth, including oral cancer. It works by using a special rinse and light source to highlight any lesions or other abnormalities in the oral cavity.
