In addition to oral cancer training, Hollywood Smile use a special supplemental technology to help in oral cancer screenings called ViziLite Plus. This advanced light technology helps detect oral abnormalities, ensuring our patients receive the most comprehensive oral cancer screening possible.

ViziLite Plus is a simple, painless and non-invasive technology that improves the doctor’s ability to visualize, mark, evaluate and monitor suspicious areas at their earliest stages, before they can progress to something far more serious, and potentially life-threatening. ViziLite Plus helps your dental hygienist see what can’t be seen with the unaided eye. Hollywood Smile recommends that you have an oral cancer screening during every annual check-up.

Regular Dental Exams Are Important

It is now easier than ever to detect oral cancer early, when the opportunity for a cure is great. Currently only half of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer survive more than five years. Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. You may have a very small, but dangerous, oral spot or sore and not be aware of it.
