Issaquah, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/15/2014 -- Noble Dental Care in Issaquah, Washington is proud to announce that we have incorporated the VELscope® System into our dental practice.
The VELscope System is approved by the FDA and developed by the British Columbia Cancer Agency. The revolutionary hand-held device aids in the early detection of oral cancer. The VELscope examination is a non-invasive, painless procedure which takes only a few minutes. Dr. Mike Hamid Mirsepasi shines a blue light into the mouth to cause it to fluoresce. This fluorescence helps visualize abnormal tissue which may be, or may lead to, oral cancer.
Over 30,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer annually in the United States. With a mortality rate of over 50% at 5 years, one person every hour of every day dies of oral cancer in America. However, if detected early oral cancer is 90% survivable. Dr. Mirsepasi of Noble Dental Care states: “We’ve always conducted an annual comprehensive oral cancer screening for our patients, but the VELscope System will allow us to detect potential problems earlier. This tool helps us provide the best oral health care available.”
Noble Dental Care provides advanced Prosthodontic and family dentistry to patients of all ages. Dr. Mirsepasi specializes in dental implants, dentures, dental crowns and bridges, and cosmetic dentistry.
